Tragic Drowning in the Village on November 22nd, 2011.

A 4 year old boy fell into the water in the middle Village and drowned on Tuesday late afternoon. Unfortunately no one noticed until it was too late.

CHOICE was represented at the funeral on Wednesday and donated $100 to the family to help with the funeral arrangements.

The boy was cremated on the roadside near his hut after the ceremony, very sad villagers arrived from the neighbouring areas.

Please understand that these pictures are only intended to let past visitors and supporters, who may know the child, about this tragic accident. These extremely poor people still follow the Khmer ceremonial practise albeit in a very simple way.
