Malaysian Group, not to be outdone

As part of the last distribution of water filters for the year, a lot of planning went into the visitation and participations by a large Malay contingent.  29 visitors in fact!  Siphan was a little nervous about managing this by himself although we hired a couple of local people to assist.  By all reports, they all came away with positive experiences.  The cooked for a village, they brought thousands of feminine pads for the secondary school girls, held activities with the students and of course distributed a lot of water filters.  Siphan delivered water filters to many villages prior to their arrival so they could spend more time with the villagers.  I am sure they would have a lot more to say if they wrote this article but most or all have said they would return in a heartbeat.
