Family visit to Pursat, Battambang and Bantey Meanchy

 As much as our students like studying at Don Bosco, (Toul Kork)  nothing makes them happier than trips home to see their families. We’ve been going on family visits for several months now, traveling through many provinces and visiting many villages. But this time we went further than ever before- we journeyed to Battambang.
We left before sunrise on Friday morning and after nearly three hours, we arrived in Pursat. We were greeted as always by many smiling faces and offered fresh fruit and coconut water. In return, Sister Leeza gave every family a painting of Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary.
 We continued on our journey, visiting more homes and finished off the evening with a visit to the Community of Mother Mazzarello to visit the Sisters and students. The next morning, we attended Mass and visited the rest of our student’s houses in Tahen. As we toured the village, there was one name that was mentioned time and time again: Bishop Enrique Figaredo, or ‘Kike.’ With his help, families were provided with toilets for their homes, which is just one way of eliminating disease and illness in the countryside. He also helps people with mental and physical disabilities by matching them with local families, giving them not only a home, but a place where they are loved.

We finished our visits after lunch and many girls stayed at their homes, only to return the next day. After a five hour car ride, we finally arrived home safe and sound.
