In June 2013, 2 doctors and a group of 10 medical students volunteered to help with the vaccination for the third dose of Hepatitis B vaccine. Knowing that these medical students are all from far provinces and staying in rent houses in Phnom Penh for their study, the Salesian sisters offered them a small allowance for their gasoline.
However, they declined the allowance saying "we didn't come here for that, and we thank you for this opportunity to serve and to learn". As we insisted that they should have that allowance, they finally accepted the humble sum but then returned this money with the purchase of much medicine for the school clinic saying that "we want to be with you to help the students and the school."
We were so happy to see the goodness is contagious, Mr Ludwig, YOUR GOODNESS INSPIRES!!!
The attached is a pictorial expression of our deep felt thanks and gratitude.
With a grateful heart,
Sr. Maria - Salesian Sisters in Cambodia
