TIS Has Talent Benefit Concert – RAISED 5,350RMB!!!

Thank you very much to all the performers and those who came to enjoy the Concert.  Very pleased to report that 5,350RMB was raised for our Cambodian sister school.  This is the most we have ever raised from the Benefit Concert.  Thank you so much for your support to help those children who otherwise would not receive an education, and who for many of them have been rescued from the detestable world of human trafficking.  Even as you read this, a larger school is being built to accommodate more children as there is such a tremendous need to educate these children. Enclosed you will find a photograph of the building that will open in the near future.  Thank you very much, and please know that you are making a difference over there in Cambodia.
