Letter from Elsa High in Hong Kong

(Thank you letter from Elsa High principal in Hong Kong regarding her 27 students’ one-week volunteer trip to Vietnam. The trip was led by Scott Burke from Cosmic Volunteers and six of Elsa High’s teachers.)

Dear Scott,

On behalf of all of us at Elsa High, including our parents and the Governing body, I would like to thank you very much for indeed your part in the wonderfully successfully first educational visit for our G6 & G7 students. All the feedback I have received has been positive, and I know you worked way beyond the call of duty in more than one area in order to ensure the best outcome.

Michael and the rest of the staff very much enjoyed working together with you and I would be more than happy to recommend your organisation to other schools.

It was great meeting you and I look forward to welcoming you back to Elsa High School in the future.

Warm Regards,

Mrs. Rachel Friedman
Carmel School Association

Cosmic Volunteers Donates to Vietnam Children

We recently donated $300 USD to buy paint and roofing supplies through our volunteer programs for children in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.

Two of our volunteers in Vietnam — Norman Kirby and Ankur Agrawal — coordinated the purchase of the supplies and spent their spare time doing the painting and repair work at the orphanage.

With some of the remaining funds, the volunteers bought the children 20 shoes and gave each of them a small amount of “lucky money” for the New Year.

They also bought more painting material for a mural drawing on the wall of the shelter.  

Thanks, Norman and Ankur!
