Fund Australia. We contacted the organisation via the phone and within a
few weeks we were sent the details of a child they had selected for us

During our first stay in Laos we were lucky to spend a lot of time with local
friends and friends of friends. This gave us the chance to try a lot of
different Lao food, from street food to higher end restaurant cuisine.
Through this we also got an insight into Lao culture and family life.
impressions of Lao food is that it is very fresh, simple, healthy, and
very tasty. We also found out that Lao people spend a lot of time
cooking and sharing food with family and friends. They also love to
share a drink or maybe ten – during our visit the Beer Lao flowed in an
almost endless, happy stream.
