Po Meh prays for stability daily. The fifteen years she and her husband, Oo Reh, spent in a refugee camp before moving to the area was traumatic. She describes it as stressful, with no freedom.
But the transition to a new life here hasn’t exactly been easy – having to move their three young children around the Cedar Valley five times in five years. The 2 bedroom apartment they live in too small for their family. They have lived in places with broken windows. Another place was too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.
Po Meh rejoiced when she heard they were accepted into Habitat’s program, knowing soon the stable life she has prayed for would become a reality. "We wont have to worry anymore, we wont have to keep moving." She says she also looks forward to having a place for her kids to play, and the freedom to run around.
