Indeed, she is sharing the everyday life of the children she is taking care of. A proximity judged essential by Sophorn, who monitors more than 20 beneficiaries. “I give them daily advice and basic hygiene education; such as wash their hands, have a bath before school or make their bed and do the laundry… When a child falls ill, I provide the necessary care or accompany him or her to the nearest health center if needed. I really appreciate to work at Krousar Thmey because I can benefit from training along the year, to improve my capacity and respond more efficiently to any kind of situation.”[/learn_more]
