Indeed, she is sharing the everyday life of the children she is taking care of. An essential proximity for Sophorn, who mentors more than 20 beneficiaries. “I give them daily advice and basic hygiene education, such as wash their hands, have a bath before school or do their bed and 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.”
