The Southeast Asia Medical Support Organization (SEAM) based in Japan has been donating nutritional supplements to Lao children through Give Children A Choice for the last few years. We recently received Calorie Mate and Soyjoy bars from SEAM and distributed them at the Ban Mar Orphanage and the Special Education School (for the Deaf) in Luang Prabang. The children at the orphanage have lost their parents, the parents are unable to raise them or they have been abandoned; the children at the Special Education School are totally deaf or need assistive devices to hear, they are learning sign language to communicate as well as receiving an academic education. The following are photos from the two schools.
