It's no secret that mines dot rural Cambodia. You see evidence of it everywhere, from the children and adults who are missing limbs to the "Danger!! Mines!!" t-shirts that many tourists buy.
Did you ever stop to think what the impact of the land mines might be to a child? Open fields aren't a place to play, they're a place to avoid. If your ball should happen to go "out of bounds," it's lost forever. Retrieving it requires an act of bravery that no child should be asked to make. Building a school won't help speed the demining efforts in Cambodia, but it will provide one more safe place for kids to learn and play while they wait for their country to be fully returned to safety.Related Links
