AIDS in South-Eatsern Asia I - Tuol Sambo
In June 2009, Cambodia Authorities using force relocated 20 HIV-affected families from Borei Keila, an area in Phnom Penh (Cambodia´ capital) to the Tuol Sambo, located 25 kilometres from Phnom Penh.
Families were accomodated in metal sheds, without running water and basic sanitary facilities. They are baking in the daytime.
Many of them used to work in Phnom Penh as motorcicle taxi drivers, cleaners and dressmakers. There are no job opportunities in Tuol Sambo and travel to Phnom Penh costs about $5 which is too much for people who earn $1.5-$3 a day.
