I Was Hungry and You Gave Me Something to Eat


A 12-year-old girl, still a child herself, must care for her two nephews in Cambodia.

At 12, Rumdol’s dream is to become a doctor—but dreaming must wait for now. The Cambodian girl’s parents died when she was five, and her older sister moved to the city to work, leaving Rumdol to “mother” her two nephews. Rumdol digs in the fields for crabs or frogs to eat each day, and sometimes she borrows a little rice from neighbors. The food is barely enough to sustain the three children. Cooking and other chores force her to live an isolated existence.
