Day 19 - A Son in Debt Bondage is Returned Home - Updated

In Day 19 of my blog (this is the third entry) I wrote about a 13 year old son in debt bondage now reunited with his family. Here is a picture of the whole family together. Dad is back from working in the jungle for the past two months for wages of $50 US.

Plans for the whole community will start (well-digging has to happen in the dry season, when the water tables are at their lowest point). HOPE has purchased a big sack of rice for Huot's family that will provide them with at least sufficient sustenance for the next little while. It is not a total, sustainable change, but it will definitely take the burden off the family of having enough to eat. Rice has also been purchased for the closest neighbours as well.

This was possible due to some of the funds we raised as part of our UNION commitment. The remainder of the funds will be used towards the projects for the village.
