Indigenous Cambodian Bunong Villages Receive Mobility and Brighter Days Ahead  

Cambodia: Indigenous Remote Bunong Villages Receive Mobility and Brighter Days Ahead From The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Humanitarian Arm, LDS Charities

Bunong Village People in Cambodia with needs of individual mobility aids have been found by LDS Charities.  In Puham Village, Chiklon Village, Sen Momorom City Hall, and Bussra Commune Office,  LDSC with the partnership of AAR WCD have deliverd wheelchairs , canes, walkers, three-wheeled riders, and more to the village people.  The recipients have been individually assessed and fit for their own wheelchair.  Many of these people have lost legs due to landmines years ago.  Others have lost the use of their legs through disabling diseases.   LDS Charities discovered most have never had a wheelchair.  With smiles on their faces and excitement to move about on their own, they expressed gratitude.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or Mormons, believe the teachings of Jesus Christ that we should 'love our neighbor', and 'do unto others as you would have them do unto you'.  Jesus Christ Himself was the perfect example, giving His life for us that we may live again.
