Cambodian Resurrection - Georgia Straight

Following three decades of civil war, landmines still litter Cambodia. A group of landmine survivors – rejected by their able-bodied countrymen – have come together to forge a new life in the northern jungles of Cambodia.

Excerpt: “Land mine victims – the social outcasts of Cambodia – are wrestling a new self-respect and pride in a country devoid of a social safety net and imbued with religious superstition. They are shaking off the national mantle of, as Minko says, apathy, malaise, and melancholy created by war and dependency upon foreign aid.”
