Savong just sent me this photo, and it tells me three stories. The first story is about the children who are supported through the SOC. There they stand – a fun community of friends. I’ve seen first hand how some of these children from very poor backgrounds have gained in health and grown in confidence.
The second story is about great progress this past 12 months, with new buildings, new roofing, new footpaths and now a new sign to ‘crown’ the achievements of 2013.
Finally the sign itself tells a big story. It demonstrates the coming shift in the work of SOC – with a focus on outreach and support for children in the local community. This includes meals, support with education and other assistance.
