One person can make a difference
In 1996 Marion Fromm went with a group of men and women to Cambodia and saw first-hand the plight of land mine survivors. She saw people who, because of their injuries, were not considered employable and whose only means of survival was through begging. Outcast from society, shunned by friends and family, even stores would often refuse to serve them.
Marion returned to Adelaide, South Australia with a heavy burden on her heart to do something to change the plight of land mine survivors in Cambodia. Over the next few years she would return many times, with an ever increasing desire to help not through temporary hand-outs, but by finding a way to train and provide work for landmine survivors.
In June 2000 God gave Marion a vision of a large area of vacant land that she recognised as being similar to land that she had seen in Cambodia. She saw a factory appear on the land and later a dormitory-style housing block and finally a church. In seeing this vision Marion felt that God had challenged her to establish a sheltered workshop factory for people that are disabled by landmines, to give them quality of life, meaningful employment and assisted living. To the right is a concept drawing of the proposed factory building.
So Reverse the Curse (of land mines) Cambodia was born because of one woman's compassion and determination to reverse the terrible curse of landmines by providing a sheltered workshop factory that will eventually be self-supporting.
Join with Marion and Reverse the Curse (RTC) to make a life changing difference in the lives of landmine survivors in Cambodia.
