Kembara Prihatin - A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Word

I recently visited Phnom Penh, Cambodia on Kembara Prihatin mission (Caring Mission - literally translated) and have teaser blogged it, you can read it here. As mentioned, the objective was to extend help to the orphanage and less fortunate Muslim in remote areas of Phnom Penh, the activities involved were :

1. Medical camp
2. Mosque restoration
3. Sewing classes
4. Solat classes
5. Building of water well and pipes
Last week, I finally get to see for myself how they live and their daily environment. Thus, I would like to share with everyone what I saw and experienced. 
The pictures speaks for itself.
