Trishaw Tours Afterparty

After a long day of hard cycling and getting soaked, we can say that we thoroughly tested our new shoes, we’ve been struggling with ours for some time now, if you’re in the same boat,  >> read more about touring shoes online, the technology has skyrocketed and is affordable now. We rode so long and so hard but we persevered and were ready to kick back and relax at our after party, kindly hosted by the two lovely ladies who run Group Therapy Coffee, at 49 Duxton Road, #02-01.

A large group of alumni and supporters heard short presentations on The Cambodia Trust and Project Southeast Asia.

In particular, Fiona Callanan, a lawyer and supporter of The Cambodia Trust, gave a heartfelt speech about how losing a leg and having to use a prosthetic changed her life, and how the work of The Cambodia Trust makes a simple but massive change to the lives of the disabled and disadvantaged.

Listening with rapt attention

Xin Hui followed this with an impromptu speech, in which she drew upon her own experience as a doctor to elaborate on how important The Cambodia Trust’s work is. In particular, she noted, rehabilitation was just as important as acute care in enabling people to return to normal and useful lives, but it is an aspect of healthcare that is often overlooked or neglected. She also spoke about how inspiring Dr Peter Carey is, and how he had made such a big difference to the lives of so many. Finally, she talked about Project Southeast Asia and what it was trying to achieve for the region and its people.

We spontaneously received a number of donations to The Cambodia Trust, for which we were very grateful and appreciative. If you haven’t donated and would like to do so, you can donate to both charities at our JustGiving pages.

Thank you once again to everyone who came!
