The Chan Family

Our Story

Thorn Sean and her husband, Chhurn Then would like to live close to a market, so they could sell vegetables they grow. They currently make about $5/day fishing and have four children, three of whom attend public school. They had a home, but it fell into the river in the recent mudslide with the Chomreun family’s house.
