The Good Shepherd – Children’s Home
From the beginning
The Good Shepherd Children's Home was founded by Martin and Elisabeth Feucht in 2000. While living in Phnom Penh, the Couple were burdened by a problem so prevalent in Cambodia - abandoned children, children without adequate clothing, food, children who lacked the love they all long for and most of all, children who had not hope for the future. They decided to take it into their own hands by opening their home to underprivileged children. Over the course of a year, the home grew from housing 10 children to 30. They employed staff to help run the household, to hold Bible studies and worship sessions and teachers to offer English lesson.
Sadly, Martin passed away in 2010, which led Elisabeth to return back to Germany with her 5 adopted Cambodian children. She continues to direct the NGO from Germany as acting Director.
Sureyah and his wife Srey Phoas lived for many years at Good Shepherd Children's Home. Since 2017, Sureyah is director of the children's home Project.
Goal and purpose
Not only do we want to give the children a 'roof over their heads', but a home, to accompany them for a part of their life and confront them with the love of God. Each child should be challenged according to their abilities and led to a responsible and independent lifestyle. The children attend a Christian, private school, which gives them a solid and good education. This school costs a small monthly fee.Further Info
