My Village Haircut By A Cambodian Landmine Survivor - Sponsored By Canadian Landmine Foundation

 
Published on Jan. 7, 2013

Landmine survivor Doeum Tab is the 'Talk of The Village' ever since he opened his new barber shop in his remote village of Andock Dob Moy in remote Battambang province. The complete barber shop business, including the shop, was funded by the Canadian Landmine Foundation. The project on the ground was conducted by A Mine Free World Foundation, Battambang Rotary member Nouv Sareoun and her brother Ra, and assisted by Banyan Learning Tree's director Om Chamnap. Doeum makes 50 cents a haircut and has about 5 customers a day since his shop has opened - only 2 weeks ago! Doeum is a widower, living alone - so this business has also provided him with an outlet with which to converse with people as they sit in his chair ;-) To help provide self-sustainability for a landmine survivor, see www.aminefreeworld.org
