The Vietnamese in Cambodia
When Doan was 13 years old, he and his 15 year old sister escaped from their home country of Vietnam. There was a war in Vietnam. Though it was very dangerous, Doanâ€™s mother sent her children away, hoping that they would reach another country where they could get an education. Doan, his sister and sever others escaped Vietnam in a small fishing boat. After spending 11 frightening days on the open sea, they arrived safely in Hong Kong. They were accepted into a refugee camp and waited for sponsorship to another country.
