Sangpien’s Thai Dinner 2015

A number of the club members were again able to enjoy a beautiful Thai dinner which was hosted by Sangpien and Steven in their home.

Sangpien showed us a short video of her last visit to her home town in Thailand and the things she could do with money raised from these dinners. Sangpien also introduced us to Modeste, a Burundian with whom he worked with during his visit to Burundi.

We also celebrated Ian’s birthday.
