The drum beat begins in Cambodia
A week of hard work and big smiles on the build site in Cambodia. More than 300 volunteers built homes alongside 21 Cambodian partner families during the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project 2009.

Carter Work Project volunteers in Cambodia helped build 21 houses during the 2009 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. The new homeowners relocated from a dump site in Damnak Thom village, on the eastern outskirts of Phnom Penh. The homes were built in the northwestern border of the capital in Sra Por village, Punhea Leu district, Kandal province.

Habitat for Humanity Cambodia provided microfinance loans and other help to build the homes, a clinic and a community center.
