Khmer Independent Life Team, KILT
Community and Social Support - Supporting Poor Landmine Victims, Polios and Children
Organization Name: Khmer Independent Life Team (KILT)
As a consequence of thirty years of war, 6 million unexploded landmines leave thousands of Cambodians disabled as amputees each year. There are more than 300,000 Khmer with disabilities . One of the highest percentages in the world.
KILT founder, Muy Seu Bel (Bel), is a Cambodian landmine survivor, and since the age of seven, after having had his right leg amputated, he has had to support himself. He went to school independently, learnt English and successfully conpleted university with no parental guidance and very little support.
KILT aims to end the cycle of poverty caused by landmines for those who live with disabilities and poor orphans to provide jobs for people with disabilities, allowing them the opportunity to have access to the resources that they need in order to reach their full potential and their highest level of personal independence.
The profits made from the sale of semi-precious stones jewelry are re-invested to KILT homestead which currently gives shelter to disabled adults, and children who are orphaned or who have been abandoned by their parents.
