We are most fortunate to have had 3 photographers visit our Center last week. Karl Grobl http://karlgrobl.com/blog/ngo-work/ has worked for the past 12 years shooting for humanitarian aid organizations and Alejandra and Marcus are just starting out in the business. They are donating the photographs to the children, families and our Center! It is so wonderful for the parents to have photographs of their children. We take it for granted here in the US because we all get professional photos of our children or take them ourselves however that is not the case here and in many parts of the world. Pictures do tell the whole story- and reflect the lives and activities of the community. We consider ourselves to be a microcosm of the larger community of Battambang. Our Center is important in the lives of the 8 villages that surround the Center. It is important for us to give back to this community and this is wonderful way to do that. I can’t wait to see the photographs! Please look at our facebook page: Sobbhana Daycare Center as Chamroeun will post the pictures soon. I will do so as well as soon as they reach me.
THANK YOU! Karl, Alejandra, and Marcus for giving of your time and talent
