Cambodia - Kampong Speu Province - A mother is feeding her son in the camp where sugar plantation workers live nearby the Phnom Penh Sugar Company factory, in the Amliang commune. Most of them come from villages far away in the province to work in the sugar plantation during the dry season. Without a proper home they sleep in makeshift tents and beds in a concrete structure provided by the company. Some of them are able to save as little as 5 USD per month.
