Siem Reap, Cambodia

Cambodia is an incredible country with an incredibly sad past. 

In the midst of us falling in love with the country and its people, we were lucky enough to be put in contact with a local Cambodian woman who worked as a hotel manager.

She came from a village called Kork Kreal, about an hour out of Siem Reap that, like most villages in Cambodia, still did not have running water or electricity.  

The village was small one of about 15 households. Chickens ran freely around, and a family of pigs was housed in a small sty.

We sat on a wooden bench, 11 women with their youngest children huddled around us and started the lesson.

With curiosity and openness they asked questions, about their bodies, and about the Freedom Cups and we answered as best as we could.

Once the cups were given out and everyone confident enough to use it, everyone went home to make sure lunch for their men, toiling on the fields in 41 degree weather, was ready.
