Being in the Don Bosco kitchen for more than 20 years, is not just being a cook. It is being a real mom, a Mamma Margarita and the Past Pupils made sure that last night Ma Sok would understand that her mission is deep on their hearts.
The program started at 6PM with a ceremony of gratitudes for Salesians, FMA and senior employees of the Don Bosco schools. Some representatives from the different schools of Poipet, Battambang, Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville and Kep expressed their feelings of love and thanks for all what Don Bosco and their leaders have done all these years. The past pupils joint together to make a big donation of rice and some funds to the six Salesian and FMA communities. An atmosphere of gathering old friends, remembering old times and updating new stories came with a dinner and music animation.
Father John Visser greeted by some of his past pupils who will call him always as Puk Thom (Big Father.)

Although the absence of some senior Salesians, FMA and old employees, the Past Pupils were happy with the presence of a great number of them.

Donation of rice to the Don Bosco schools "so the Salesians and FMA can continue doing with new generations of youth, the same they did with us," they say.
Meeting old companions is a great joy.
