There are 12,000 children who live in orphanages in Cambodia, but only 1 in 5 children are actually orphans. Some have been exploited and used in an industry called orphanage tourism, soliciting donations from tourists. Robert Kee, a Singaporean who runs Hope Village, an orphanage 2 hours away from Phnom Penh, hopes to give the children under his care a home free from exploitation and abuse.
