2016 – Reviewing A Year With Friends
Dear friends of Friends
Please join us in looking back at just a very few of the highlights of twelve months during 2016, saving lives and building futures!
FEBRUARY – following an earlier fact-finding visit to Friends, the issue of sham orphanages in Cambodia goes political in Australia and in Europe our friends in Friends France organized a great fundraising event
MARCH – in Bangkok, Thailand, preparations were well under way on new training restaurant Khanun and we all enjoyed the many talents of the Mith Samlanh students in the first of their quarterly shows for the year at Club Friends in Phnom Penh
AUGUST – we worked with a young Australian filmmaker on this great awareness-raising video about orphanages and signed collaboration agreements with the Thai authorities for even better collaboration on child protection
NOVEMBER – we caught up with some of the many ChildSafe achievements over the year, in writing and also onscreen in this great video from Wild Asia – and check out Emmanuelle from Friends Suisse receiving their award at the WTM in London
Happy New Year 2017 to all our friends, partners, supporters and readers!
