I’ve stayed at that You Khin House guesthouse in Phnom Penh over the past couple of years. I’ve enjoyed my time there and they do work in supporting Seametrey Children’s Village. It’s a school next door that provides quality education to poor Khmer children. They have an Indiegogo campaign to help with support. Please give and share. You’re giving to a great cause and helping wonderful people. Donate now. You can also stay at You Khon House.
