It all started with the adoption of Pascale's daughter Sotheary in Austria. Sotheary was born in Cambodia. Pascale visited Cambodia in December 2018 with her adopted children. She visited the children's home of the non-profit organization FLO “Future Light Organization” in Phnom Penh, capital of the country where Sotheary spent the first 30 months of her life.

Pascale was touched by the friendliness of the staff and their care for children in need. But the current financial situation of the children's home is worrying and precarious. For this reason, the sponsorship program was born to help the children of the children's home.

Our local partner "Future Light Organization" (FLO)

FLO is an organization that runs a care center for orphans, very poor and vulnerable Cambodian children. There are currently 76 children living in the children's home, 33 boys and 46 girls. FLO is located a few kilometers from Phnom Penh International Airport. FLO is officially recognized in Cambodia by the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Social Affairs as a charitable organization.

The children's home is a “home” for the children, where they live, live and learn until they can lead a life as adults. Until then, it's part of a big family. As a result, FLO has to care for them with love and good organization and provide all the necessary products such as school uniform, materials, hygiene supplies, food and much more. FLO is facing financial problems as it no longer has a main sponsor to support it on a regular basis.
