St. Peters church floats, its parishioners landless

FLOATING CHURCH

They are landless. They own no land. They have no land on which to set their feet. No land willing to welcome them. Decades back these Vietnamese entered Cambodia, fleeing the violence of war.  They settled on water, on small platforms, which serve as their homes. Boarded wooden roofs and walls and old tattered clothes, hanging out to dry, testify to the modesty of their existence.
