Program Title: A Step Toward Inclusion: Cambodia
Description: Cambodia is one of the most heavily land mined countries in the world -­ still with about millions of pieces of unexploded ordnance and landmines in existence. According to the HALO Trust, “over 64,000 landmine casualties have been recorded in Cambodia since 1979, and with over 25,000 amputees Cambodia has the highest ratio per capita in the world.”

Accidents occur often. Cambodians with these injuries are often disregarded as viable in a culture that fears, misunderstands and ignores their gifts and abilities. A Step Toward Inclusion: Cambodia follows one man, Mean Sokhum, a guide at the war museum in Siem Reap, Cambodia, and his fight for work, respect and dignity as a person with a landmine injury.

David Peck is an academic, speaker and social change consultant from the Toronto area, advocating for health, literacy, and restorative justice both nationally and internationally. He is the producer and host of the Face2Face podcast, and has written for a number of publications including the Huffington Post.
