We currently live outdoors and have done so for over 3 weeks now. We really need a room and food for March and then hopefully we fly to the UK.
Thank you all so very much.
We are a family of four. Syon is 10, Tani is 8, Jay Jay is 4 and I am their father, Simon. We lost our mother and wife in June 2020 and as we live in Cambodia, I have found it especially hard to care for my three little ones alone. Their mother's family are incredibly poor themselves and have not been able to assist. I have no family in the UK but I do see our future there if we can only get back..
We have an immediate need for some assistance so I might find and rent a room and buy food for us all for now. My children have the love and care of their grandma and I but eating boiled rice once a day, drinking boiled rainwater and going to the toilet in some bushes is very unhealthy for us all.
I need your help to get them back, please. No bathroom and livestock defecating everywhere, no refrigeration to keep food fresh, mosquitoes in constant attack mode and sleeping outside with a 'roof' and no walls is the life of many in this world but as a British citizen I am very lucky to have a chance to give my kids a future.
I need your help to do it, please.
With sporadic to no schooling and the death of their mum, I see my children crawling into dark spaces that I really fear will hold them for the rest of their lives. They need love, life and learning as any child does and I am found wanting when it comes to doing it all without support. My last money ran out in the city when trying to find work.
I personally live with HIV and have always suffered with chronic depression. These two factors make any ordinary life much harder to cope with and our lives are very much less than ordinary and difficult. I can be healthy and strong but my treatment is vital and I now struggle to get to any hospital for the care I need as I cannot travel when I need to. I only mention this as I see that I am the children's only hope of a future so I need to try and live as long as I can to help them have that future before I leave them too.
This campaign is to ask for help in keeping us fed and healthy, eventually getting all of us back to the UK, where there is ample support for a widower and his 3 babies, not to mention the education they will get and the medical support I need.
I could work again as an online teacher but I can't afford a suitably quiet place to work . My total earnings for last year were $7601.07.
The embassy is offering advice on processes(not funding in any way) but again I cannot even support a household(food/rent) at this current time.
We'll be deemed completely homeless upon arrival in the UK so I have already contacted SHELTER and will contact the Salvation Army to see where we could live until the British government can assist us in putting a life together for these three little heartbreakers.
I encourage you to ask ANY questions at any time to help clarify and help you make an informed decision.

Thank you so very much to each of you. We are now trying to see out our remaining time here as best we can and your help has made it much less arduous. Fresh fruit and store bought drinking water are helping keep spirits and our health up.Please try to
The good news first...Update posted by Simon Barrie Miller at 05:56 am
I'm very happy to announce that the British government have all but sanctioned a loan for us to fly home. This is a wonderful chance to give my children the foundations of a good future.It is with a saddened and broken heart that I must still ask for funds to. . . . .
Passport fees and costs.Update posted by Simon Barrie Miller at 07:08 pm
I have now been made aware that passports for the children will cost 73 GBP ($99 USD approx) each. There are supporting documents and translations that might well cost up to $120 but I am hoping the British embassy can assist. I will keep you updated, thanks.
