Than learned about F2F’s Victory Garden Campaign back in 2019. This proved to be fortuitous because Covid brought lockdowns and prevented Than and his wife, Chea, to go work in Thailand — something they usually did for many months at a time. They would take one child with them, leaving the other two children with their parents.
In Thailand, doing construction work, they could make around $150 each. They are now happy to report that they are at home with their children and making money from their victory garden. They value being together as a family, having good, nutritious food, and work that is not risky to the body and one’s health.
Than plans to enlarge his garden and sell his vegetables to more markets — he’s determined to make his garden as profitable as working in Thailand. Plus, as an added benefit, he absolutely loves working in his garden.
