Where do the children live

The children live in one of the most remote places on earth. The village is called Tham Lot Kong Lo in Laos. It takes 2 days to get there from the capital city (Vientianne).

The only transportation link that Tham Lot Kong Lo has with the rest of the world is a river, that goes through a 7 km cave and takes about an hour to cross—there are no roads to the village.


Here are some pictures of a typical trip to the village... enjoy the ride!
