Agape Fish Fund partners with Southeast Asian Prayer Center (SEAPC) to provide orphans in Cambodia with a Christian home.
Four Children Sponsored
This year we sponsored 4 Cambodian children: Soklang (boy, 6); Sopheak (boy, 14); Sinet (girl, 11); Sopheary (boy, 11). Our sponsorship provides a safe Christian home for the children where they can learn about Jesus, have nourishing food, receive a good education, and have loving house parents.
This year we sponsored a Cambodian orphan named Soklang Vun. This 6-year-old boy lives in the Kampong Cham children's home.
Soklang is an only child, and his parents got divorced in 2015. His father remarried another lady, and he later died in a car accident.
Soklang's mother took him to live with his grandmother, and then one day she left without warning. Soklang's mother never visited or gave money for Soklang and his grandmother to even have food. Soklang and his grandmother lived in a difficult situation. The local Committee of Women and Children realized the situation Soklang was in and helped him transition to the children's home in January 2016.
Soklang is known to be friendly and a bit hard-headed. He hasn't done well in school so far, but he likes to play with his friends. Around the home, he helps by collecting garbage. On Sundays he attends church services. During his free time he likes to play, and his favorite color is green.
Meet the Kovs
In addition to sponsoring Soklang, we also sponsored 3 siblings in Cambodia this year: Sopheak, Sinet, and Sopheary Kov.
These 3 siblings just entered the Kampong Thom children’s home on September 9, 2017. Their father was a soldier who went on a mission in another province. For years he never came back to visit the family. One day they heard that he passed away from drinking too much alcohol.
Since their father was gone, their mother worked very hard to try to support and look after the children. She played both roles as mother and father of the family. She didn’t have any skills and earned just barely enough for the family for each day. She didn’t have time to take good care of the children because she was busy working all the time and was almost never at home.
Consequently, her children’s physical health declined and they did very poor in their studies. The children had to live on their own and try to find their own food to cook and eat. If they chose to spend time studying then they would not have anything to eat. Because of this, the 3 siblings came to the children’s home, where they are now learning about Jesus and getting proper nourishment and education.
