We leave this Monday!
We spent this week in class familiarizing ourselves with Cambodia, including their history and culture. We studied buddhism and even spent time meditating with our very own Brother Camillus from St. Mary's.
Our fundraising efforts far surpassed our goals. We have raised funds among family and friends for 10 WATER WELLS (at $220 each) that we will visit in the villages. We are also bringing over $1000 to fund anything we deem a top priority. We have collected over 1000 lbs of donated supplies, such as clothing, books, school and hygiene supplies, medical supplies, games and soccer balls.
We are all vaccinated and have our malaria pills at the ready. We are all very excited to fly out this Monday (January 9th) morning at 11:35am.
