    @Jacobs_food_diaries is endorsing REACH Siem Reap; help Laleh feed kids in Cambodia!

    “Modern day slavery” constitutes of individuals being bought, forced or coerced into exploitative labour under false premises. Cambodia is ranked 9th out of 167 countries on the Global Slavery Index. As you are reading this, approximately 260, 000 Cambodians that were living in poverty have recently been sold lies of a promising future by traffickers, before being trafficked both within and across borders. At this moment in time, approximately 260, 000 Cambodians are being forced to work in abhorrent environments for little to no pay or to debt bondages. At this exact second, thousands of them are trapped indefinitely at sea on fishing boats, working 20 hours a day, unknowing of the next time their feet will touch land.

    Even more shockingly, many of them are under the age of 16 years old.

  • Ride through the year with us...

    It’s been one month since my last blog, and as I sit in the comfort of my apartment, where I have been busy working on program development while social distancing, I wonder how each and every one of you are doing in this devastating and confusing time.

    I call it the COVID-19 limbo, an extraordinary and strange time, where each and every person in the world is going through the motions of grief. All of our individual struggles vary greatly, but one thing we all share, is fear of the unknown.
