The grandson of Sak San, 70 and Ou Yun, 60 who have cared for their grandchildren  since 2006.  Their daughter (the boys' mother) died from an AIDS related disease in 2002 and her husband in 2004 before ARV medication became available in Takeo Province.  Both boys are HIV+ and on ARV medication.  The family earns 2,000-10,000 Riel per day ($0.5-$2.5) through selling fish, but are unable to fish in the dry season and are therefore dependent on money from NGOs. (image by Michael Nott)
