He is a young Cambodian man who manages the small business Moringa for Health in Battambang, Cambodia. Sombak employs four other Cambodians and purchases Moringa leaves from poor Cambodian farmers, providing them with supplemental income. He is pictured here with some of Moringa for Health’s all natural soap-which Mercy Market currently carries in three varieties-rice milk, avocado and lemongrass. In a country where the average annual income is $830, Moringa for Health provides a dignified way for Sombak, his staff and poor farming families to support themselves. We had the privilege to meet Sombak and his staff on our trip to South East Asia last fall and we were so impressed by Sombak’s intelligence, passion for his business and faith.
Here is a picture of one farming couple in Battambang, both who have AIDS, and the Moringa tree in front of their hut.
This couple both sells leaves to Moringa for Health and receives morninga powder from the AIDS care program that Moringa for Health supports through their local church. The morninga leaf is high in antioxidants, vitamins and iron and, when taken regularly in powder form, can greatly help AIDS patients suffering from malnutrition and anemia.
Here are the bags of Moringa powder that are given to AIDS patients.
Here is Sombak showing us the trees in his newly purchased Moringa orchard. He was so proud of this place.
Here I am holding Moringa seeds that will be pressed to make oil.
We are so proud to partner with this small, indigenously operated business that is making an impact on the lives of so many people in their community.
