These are precarious times for Cambodia. Just a few days ago they held their Presidential elections. The ruling party, CCP, and the long-term President, Hun Sen, won again, not surprisingly. But there are widespread allegations of serious irregularities and corruption, again not surprisingly, but now many are being openly vocal in their complaints. Whether that reaction becomes violent is yet to be seen.

It is clearly a time of change for that country, but thankfully, much of it is positive. I like to think that the small bit that I accomplish with my Writing Workshop contributes to that positive change. And now, I can show you a little bit of what I’ve been talking about these past three years.

This spring, we invited a young Khmer filmmaker, Rithea Phichith, to come to Anjali House and make a short film about the shelter and our program there. The film is now complete, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it. And, of course, if you want to know more about Anjali House, how you could become involved or even volunteer, do go here.
