Chris has been very kind and generous; he is a man with a big heart. He has sponsored two boys for several years and recently started to help two girls with their education and one with food too. He has also arranged the sponsorship of another girl. He has couch surfers stay at his home and they have made donations and he has been able to raise funds for three new roofs this way. The three families had seriously delapidated roofs and one roof is now complete, one nearly complete and one is to have work starting on it next week. All three families will be dry for the rainy season and so will their school books! The families are thrilled and so are we! Thank you Chris for your big heart,kindness and generosity!

As the founding director and manager of CEF, I feel a good board of directors and advisors is crucial for the support we need, not just practically, but also emotionally. I am blessed with a caring, considerate, conscious and compassionate board, and advisors as well. They don't just care about the charity; what it is doing, how it is growing, and developing and it's future, but they also care about the families, about myself, and our staff. Most of my board and some of our advisors have even been to Vietnam to see the work we do and to experience it first hand. This has been very helpful as well, as their advice has then become even more finely attuned. This support is invaluable and hugely appreciated!
