Morning starts early for 7-year-old Chenda. A boy with no parents and no one who cares for him.
[SHOTS OF CHENDA GETTING READY FOR THE DAY]
Like most mornings, there’s nothing to eat. He’s hungry, thin and tired. It’s hard to imagine the trauma and pain he’s endured.
His father was sent to prison over six months ago. Then Three months ago, his mother died from uterine cancer, leaving Chenda heartbroken. He was sent to live with abusive relatives who took him out of school and forced him into child labor.
00:06:38:02 Now that I don’t have my mother, I am so sad. I have to work for other people…They just use me and beat me and get angry because I don’t have parents.
[WALKING TO THE WORK SITE]
His day begins at a brick yard on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. Hour after hour, he hauls thousands of pounds of bricks. Slaving in 90 degree heat. No food, no water, no rest breaks. And for eight hours of backbreaking work, he gets 25 cents…just enough to buy a handful of rice.
00:00:24:08. I hurt all over my body but I have to keep working. I’m tired, I feel exhausted.
This is extremely dangerous work for a child. Chenda recently broke his finger. And every day the jagged bricks cut and bruise him.
00:01:57:02 … And one time the whole cart full of bricks fell down on my feet, and it nearly broke my foot. They were bleeding and I couldn’t walk. It was so painful
And when Chenda gets hurt, he has no way to get medical help. He must work through the pain.
Chenda longs for his days at school -- when he was the top student in his class.
00:09:13:09 I want to study…..I want to be a doctor. I want to cure other people so that they have better health.
[STARING THROUGH THE BARS AT LAUGHING CHILDREN]
All he can do now is sadly watch the other children enjoy the life he dreams of.
With his father in prison, Chenda lives as an outcast, banished to live here with no one to protect him. He collects wood to make a fire to keep warm. Tonight, like many nights, there’s no food to eat. In his loneliness and sadness, he thinks about his mom.
When she was alive, she looked after me, she fed me, from when I was a baby until I was as big as I am now.
Since his mother died, Chenda has been suffering from malnutrition. Every day without food, he loses more weight. Every day without medicine, he grows sicker.
00:09:13:09 I miss my mother so much. ….She always told me that she loves me.
SOVATH HIM – PFI CASE WORKER
00:05:56:21 For Chenda, if he doesn’t have help, if he doesn’t have support, he will get sicker. He isn’t getting enough food to eat, he doesn’t have enough clothes, he can’t go to school. He will not have a future.
When I pray for Chenda, I pray that he will be able to live together with a family who will love him and that he can go to school. I pray that he can have a good future, even though he has had such a bad life.
Chenda is in danger and in desperate need of someone to rescue him. You can be the one to help save a child like Chenda from a horrific life, and give them the future he dreams of.
