Sambath’s Story

Sambath is from Cambodia. She is a medical student. And she is free.


But at one time in her life she was alone, scared, and hopeless.

When Sambath was a young child, she lost both of her parents in the same year. Sambath and her four siblings were lost and confused, unsure if they would ever find goodness in their lives again.

Sambath and her siblings were taken to a OneChild center where they were cared for and taught by the staff and volunteers. Sambath was able to work her way through high school and finally graduate, which was a wish her father always had for his children. She is now studying to become a doctor and plans to stay in Cambodia where she can be a healer as well as a light for Jesus Christ.

Sambath’s sponsors during her time in the OneChild program gave her the opportunity for a new life free from the despair and hopelessness of her past. They, and the OneChild staff, showed Sambath the love that Jesus has always had her, as well as the unique purpose that he has for her life.

Thanks to sponsors like you, children like Sambath are receiving freedom and learning about Jesus’ love for them.

Thank you for all that you do!
