"If you can't feed a hundred people, just feed one." - Mother Teresa
Vietnam's rapid economic growth in the past decade has lifted many out of poverty. But that's not really the case here in An Giang Province, one of the Mekong Delta's least developed and where a lack of jobs has lead many to some hard choices.
The Chams live mostly in poverty along the banks and canals of the Mekong River.
Many families in the rural areas in An Giang Province live far below the poverty line. They can barely attend to basic living needs throughout the year. They have no land and no adequate health-care.
