We have two main activities 1) monitoring the quality of the Boarding House renovation / remodeling the Medical Building for the use of boarding boys and vulnerable students 2) Material supports and installation for Boarding House. Firstly we did an orientation with the priest in charge of leper colony and KW-Emperor team.
