Kayeng Update: Five Months After Starting School

Give Children A Choice’s Barbara and Dori Shimoda drove to Khao Yai, Thailand to visit Kayeng.  Kayeng has been living at the Makutkiriwan School for the Blind for over five months now. He speaks only Thai now. Kayeng is under exceptional care at the school. He’s growing and he’s healthy. (He lives with the other students. His father returned to Laos in April. He missed his wife.)
