Cambodia - Kampong Speu Province -  Khun Kheoun (right), 52, with her husband Vab Meab, 51. They come from the village of Thnal. The owners of 7 hectares of land, passed to Khun by her parents, the couple was dispossesed three years ago. Now, Khun and Vab have been left with just one hectare, barely enough to grow rice for them and their seven kids. “But when I will have to divide our land for all of them, they will get nothing” she complains, almost in tears.
