Gratitude is how I feel being involved with Taste the World and the CW Asia Fund; a gathering of exceptional people to make a significant difference. Not only does each dollar create such a dramatic impact but the follow-up, due diligence and involvement that we have in each project’s success is the deepest sense of gratitude one can feel.

Dear Friends,heidi

After visiting the Angkor children’s hospital in Cambodia that CW’s  Asia supports, I was very moved at the amazing work being done there to help children and families that otherwise would not be able to afford health care. So it is my personal honour to be on the committee this year for Taste the World, an event which directly supports children’s hospitals in Asia. This years event will benefit the Laos friends hospital for children in Luang Prabang and medical action in Yangon. I hope you will be able to join us to celebrate all the incredible work being done and to support the families and children who benefit so much from the hospital. Thank you kindly.

With gratitude, 

– Heidi Coglon, Event Committee Member
