The Khmer has an expression “It’s impossible to wake a person who pretends to sleep”. This is what it feels like going into the new year. Despite the training and equipment, some of our team members just don’t do their job. The excuses are always vehicle is busy or they are on a mission! The reality is that we do have shortage of fuel, it’s expensive and we can’t always afford it.
