  1. That's awesome. Congratulations for your hard work, and especially the water wells. Everybody deserves access to clean water.

    I'm also trying to help some kids from an organization in Cambodia right now. I made a lipdub (video) featuring 300 kids in an Angkor Temple in Siem Reap. You should check it out: . Feel free to share it !
