Buy the book – The Monk, the Farmer, the Merchant, the Mother


This book tells the true stories of the lives of four simple country people. Now old, they reflect on the events of their lives and talk about the traditions of Khmer village life.

Mey Sampho tells of life in Buddhist monastery where he acts as Deputy to the Head Monk; Chhin Muon describes the techniques of rice farming upon which rural communities depend, Nun Chhuon talks of his impoverished childhood and his lifelong struggle to set up a number of successful small business and Prom Tun recounts her dedicated and determined quest to train as a mid-wife and to bring safer modern techniques of midwifery to women in rural communities.
This is one of the only books which documents the lives of survivors who stayed in Cambodia and in their own words. It is also a significant anthropological reflection on Cambodian life over the past six decades. The book is just $10 and all Profits go to FEDA.
