STT publishes new report featuring stories of women at the Phnom Penh railways relocation site

Facts and Figures #20, entitled Railways Relocation in Phnom Penh: Six Women Tell Their Stories, was published by local urban NGO Sahmakum Teang Tnaut on Apr. 2. Featuring the direct narratives of six elderly women, many of them widows, relocated from their homes along Phnom Penh’s railway tracks to Trapeang Anchang relocation site some 20-25km away, the publication begs the question of whether the ADB’s assurances that all sites are equipped with basic services and an income-restoration programme is provided ahead of relocation really holds true.
