Not been blogging

I have not really been blogging for a while but think it is time to change that and start again.IMG_1841

I spend a lot of time walking the streets of Phnom Penh, seeing the changes in the city, seeing a city moving forward without a care for what is happening to those who live there. I see many new high rise buildings, many of which are empty of people, many building just appear to be thrown up haphazardly without any thought to the local surroundings or planning, building because we can.

I have been following these elections with dumbfounded interest. The unbelievable naevity of local people simply amazes me. They believe what politicians tells them, seamingly without question.

Sam Rainsey (CNRP), makes lots of promises for changes to the plight of ordinary Cambodia, I hope he is able to fulfill the promises, I somehow have some doubts … but the people believe all he tells them. Only time will tell.

Meanwhile the CPP continues to run the place with a fist of Iron all be it in a very well made kidd glove.

IMAGINE – JustWorld International

“Imagine.” Let’s take a minute to think about this powerful word. It suggests ideas and dreams for the future. It brings hope that what can be imagined, can be achieved. I’m happy to say that with our donors’ help, we have achieved what was once just an idea, hope, and dream for thousands of children.

Then: Phymean Noun with the kids in the garbage dump before attending the JustWorld/PIO school.

Allow me to introduce you to some of the children at the JustWorld/People’s Improvement Organization (PIO) school at Stung Mean Chey, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Han, Chhun, Vor, and Keo shared with me their dreams to someday become teachers, photographers, and nurses. Their reality, however, was much different. They were barefoot, sick, and hungry – scavenging a garbage dump for food and any materials that could be sold, earning a few pennies a day and having no means to a better life.

As you imagine how life was for these children, realize that in less than a decade, with the help from JustWorld supporters like you, we have been able to provide free education, free meals, and free medical care to more than 3,000 children at JustWorld projects in Honduras, Cambodia, Guatemala, and Brazil. We’ve given these children the ability to imagine a better life, filled with hope and sucess for the future.

Today: Students at the JustWorld/PIO school at Stung Mean Chey

Can you imagine what more we can do together?

We need your support. Please contribute to the JustWorld International Annual Fund. Participation at any level is important and your contribution will help ensure that all of our programs continue to offer our kids – this year and every year – the opportunity to fulfill their dreams with the tools and support JustWorld has given them.

Sincerely,

Jessica Newman
