Cambodia: Light after Darkness
My father decided to visit Cambodia in 2012 to learn more about the condition of Muslims in a land dominated by communists. And he wanted to see if there was something he or GiveLight could do in light of the atrocity of Khmer Rouge where millions of innocent were massacred, and the ongoing discrimination against minority Muslims.
GiveLight Sri Lanka: Dreams and Possibilities
Our home in Sri Lanka came into existence on March 31, 2013 after two years of construction. It was built on land donated to GiveLight by a team member, Shahram Marleen after the sudden death of his beloved father. This was Shahram's way of honoring his father, and continuing his legacy.
Flickers of Light: Our first home 10 years after Tsunami
I arrived at our Aceh home on a windy, bright sunny morning. The children had been anticipating my arrival and I had been anxious to see them. As I got out of the car, they rushed to greet me with their warm smiles and hugs. Two years had elapsed since our last reunion and we all felt a strong surge of happiness to be reunited in our beautiful home after such a long time.
