JRS was an organization that I believed in – many priests and many nuns used their real compassion, action and belief, and they showed us how to live, and how to share. We learnt from their compassion that they showed us, and that they gave to everyone.
I joined JRS in maybe July or August 1993. First I joined the JRS wheelchair-making program. When I first joined, I didn’t care about others, I only cared about myself and how to bring up my family. Then I joined the campaign to ban land mines and then I knew how to help others, especially the people of Cambodia.
Now I am part of the JRS and international campaign to ban land mines. I now have the opportunity to help others, it is a slow process but I hope it is successful.
