Next week starts Khmer New Year which is one of the biggest holiday periods in the Khmer calendar. Many of our children go back to their home villages for a short time during this period. However, for those who are left behind we always try to fit in a trip as a special treat for them.
Today we took 23 children out to a local fast food restaurant. Fried chicken, chips and cokes were polished off at an alarming rate. They did of course still have space for an ice cream afterwards.
23 kids went out. 23 kids returned. That's a successful trip in my book!
