The Chom Chao Orphan Home is located in the Chom Chao District just south of Phnom Penh.
Phnom Penh is the only city in Cambodia with any industrial base. The clothing industry is by far the largest employer in the city with more than 100,000 people finding jobs in that sector. There are many small shops and cottage industries in the city in addition to the more than 15,000 prostitutes. AIDS is by far the largest contributor to the orphan population in the Phnom Penh area.
Pastor An Sokha has pioneered the concept of the “Cambodian Orphan’s Choir” which is a powerful witness in both song and traditional dance.The children prayer time on Friday evenings has become known as the most powerful spiritual gathering in Cambodia, with prayer requests coming from around the world.
The home was built and dedicated in December 2002. Since the orphan home is located in Phnom Penh it has fast became a base/training center for the rest of the orphan homes in the country. The children and staff of the home all help in raising pigs, poultry, fish, rice, and vegetable gardens.
