Rice Drop Day

Day 128:  We have finished teaching at the school, but the remaining three of us go back to assist with the rice distribution to the local village families.  It is here they receive their rations for a month.  There are sponsored families, who receive 50kg bag of rice, spices and oil to cook with.  Then it goes down to other unsponsored families receiving smaller rations of  30kg or 10kg rice bags.  This was an amazing sight.  The families all waited patiently until it was their turn.  These families have no cars and so a lot of people were managing their rice bags on push bikes or motor bike taxi to take it back home. The people were so thankful, bowing and thanking us as they rode home.  To sponsor a family go to New Hope Cambodia link.  You can see where you money goes, direct into food for these people.
