It is with profound sadness that I announce the passing of Aki Ra's wife Hourt. She was the mother of Amatak, Mine, Metta and dozens of children who now and in years passed have called the Cambodia Landmine Museum their home.

She will be deeply missed. She made all of our lives better for having known her.

I am en route to Siem Reap for her funeral services which have already begun. I will be there for a couple of weeks to help where I can and let Aki Ra and the family know that they are in our hearts and prayers at this terrible time.

Donations to help them cover the cost of the funeral can be made at the our website: Any excess monies will be used to carry on the works that were so close to Hourt's heart.

With deep sadness

Just visited the Landmine Museum two days ago. Great work done by Aki Ra, Hourt and team. It is sad to learn that she passed away so young. My heartfelt condolences to Aki Ra and his family. Be strong and you always have our support !
