STRAIGHT FROM OUR SOCIAL MEDIA
International Autism Dat, Taking the Challenge to the Next Level It’s International Autism Day. To celebrate this day and to show our love and support for all those affected by this challenging condition we would like to share one young lady’s story. Not only did Viengsam rise to meet the challenge but she went on to ensure she could help others facing the same challenge in her country Laos. It was an honour and a pleasure working with all at the Laos Autism Association and we are so happy to share this story again. Posted by Small World Stories on Monday, April 1, 2019
