Srey Ly

IMG_1046

Abandoned by her parents, this little girl Srey Ly was sent out nightly by her grandmother into the harsh exploitative environment of Cambodian nightlife to wander in search of a few dollars through begging.  Our groups would stumble upon her and feed her and then escort her home with a couple of dollars so she could stay off the streets and out of the crosshairs of the predators who roam the streets. She would often only eat a few bites of her meal so she had enough to take home and share with her grandmother – the same one sending this vulnerable young girl out into a tremendously harsh world in darkness.  Attempts were made to enroll her in school but they fell apart as support from her grandmother was not possible.
