A VERY SMALL group of Singaporeans comprising two retirees, two in freight forwarding, an auditor, a university lecturer and some of their friends, have been helping established Catholic mission stations in Myanmar and Cambodia. Projects include electricity connection to a technical school, building of water storage tanks, water filtration system, toilets, food, care, education and school supplies for very poor children, sponsorship of high school and university students and of student teachers’ wages as they return to their villages to teach the children.
It doesn’t take a lot of money – just a love for the poor and a spirit of sharing, said one of the donors.
