The students of ISIHA are training to run the Madagui Adventure Triathlon on Feb. 25, 2012.  We are hoping to raise money to build another adventure playground in Hoi An for the local kids to enjoy.  We love the playground at our school, and want to share the joy with the kids in the community.  We have plans, builders and a location, all we need now is the funding to make it happen.  Please help us make our beautiful town even better!

One of my clients told me an awful story this week. He is a Karenni refugee, blind, and trying to make his way in this country by learning as much as he can. Unfortunately, his family and community, was burdened by tragedy when his uncle, whom he looks up to and is renowned within the community, was the victim of a senseless shooting. He was driving to his job, milking cows on a dairy farm, early in the morning, and was shot and killed. He leaves behind his wife and 5 children. They were struggling to survive already, and now have no source of income. If there was ever a family in need, my client's family speaks no English, has no source of income, and his aunt can't possibly work as she needs to care for all her children. Anything would help. Here is the link to the news report.
