Golf Shirt and Pants Donation

February 2016
Clothing Donated / Delivered!

Lynda Miller donated hundreds of brand new white tops and track pants in all sizes; then Leanne took over this huge supply of clothes and books for us for the schools.

The golf shirts and sweat pants and books were delivered to the Chan Teap School located in Takeo on Saturday, February 6th when they did the bike distribution.

They were most pleased and said to say a big Acun Tran!! (Or however you spell thank you in Khmer).

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.

These schools are projects solely run by A Mine Free World Assistance Programs and are supported
from donations through the Bridge Groups from Toronto.
