    • Synopsis
    • Today, they are 25 years old and have finished school or already started working. When they were children, they all had to scavenge for survival in the trash dump of Stung Meanchey – Cambodia.

      That is where a couple of French travellers, Christian and Marie-France, met them for the first time over 20 years ago. Ever since, they have struggled relentlessly to remove the children from such a hell. So far, they have helped around 10 000 children to get an education and build their future.
