This is a very poor area and quite a number of the older people only speak and understand Bahasa Sunda! Due to the generous help of one of our faithful sponsors and good friends we were able to buy a snack pack to accompany each prescription of free medicine.

Gary participated as a juror (judge) in an English Speaking Competition held at Bina Bangsa Sejahtera High School in Bogor. The aim is to improve the students’ proficiency in using English. A Speech Competition and a Debate Competition were held.
