Phean couldn’t be more happy. She loved the cooking and eating together. It was also a bit emotional as her Cambodian friends don’t visit a lot since they think Phean’s house is too small. So the big hug by the guests on their way out made her proud and grateful.
Local coordinator Peterhans about Phean


We had a great time in Marrakech, Morocco with our host! We met in the main square and Ezza walked us back to her house. We had a wonderful meal and great conversation. Afterwards, Ezza even found us a place to buy a traditional teapot at a very reasonable price (a hard thing to do in Marrakech!). Overall, it was one of the best meals we had in Morocco and we had an amazing time!
