Canadian Kindness Felt in Faraway Cambodia

Most people in the bridge world know Barbara Seagram as one of the top teachers, a prolific author and an intrepid tour guide. What's not so well known is how far she will go to help her fellow mankind.

Canadian Kindness Felt in Faraway CambodiaAbout three years ago, Seagram and fellow tour guide Patti Lee discovered a need in Cambodia and went into action.

Today, they and their supporters sustain the operations of four schools in Phnom Penh area, paying for electricity, supplies (including computers) and the salaries of teachers and librarians.

"We couldn't do it without them," says Lee, a retired IBM accountant executive who took up teaching and directing bridge after leaving the company.

Lee has traveled with Seagram for 20 years, organizing and escorting bridge groups in various parts of the world.

Please visit the Banyan Tree Organization website. Your donation will be used for the construction and operations of the schools. The schools are supported from donations through the Bridge Groups from Canada and the U.S.A.
