15 Feb 2013

The longest & darkest month of the year is over and it is only a few weeks away from spring. Forget your New Year's resolutions, they were never meant to be kept anyway. I certainly feel no guilt for returning to my bad habits (wine) and get on with my life. I am looking forward to leaving work when it is still daylight and watch the new buds spring up on the trees.

I always seem to go into a hibernating mode during the winter months and it appears our website had the…

Happy New Year Everyone! 2013 took off well for CLAPA, Bonnie Studd started with us as a fundraising intern to give much needed help to Louise. We also reshuffled the seating arrangement in the office, so we don't get bored seeing and chatting to the same people all the time grin However, all you can see here now are boxes upon boxes of bottles as our annual supply of special feeding bottles turned up this week. At least it keeps us warm and cosy.

Cambodia: Week Twelve

Our final week at the National Paediatric Hospital (NPH) and Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC).

This week we were very conscious that it was our last opportunity to consolidate the new skills the Speech Advisors at both settings have learnt during our time in Phnom Penh. More than ever, it was really important that we took a back seat during sessions and let Alin and Samnang take the lead.
