Morn­ing’s fun helps Lao­tian stu­dents

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Over 80 peo­ple en­joyed a hugely suc­cess­ful fundraiser for the Laos or­phans held at Palmer’s Sea Reef Golf Club which raised over $2000. This money will sup­port three chil­dren who grad­u­ated from the or­phan­age school into fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion. A to­tal of $US670 a year pays for their tu­ition, keep and all per­sonal ex­penses. With­out this op­por­tu­nity of a fu­ture, they would have to re­turn to their poor ru­ral vil­lage.
