On the last Sunday of the month, a group of barangs get together and do community service in one of the poorer villages outside of Siem Reap. The participants fondly call this group and day of service Barangs Without Borders.

The outing is hosted by Husk, a local NGO, focused on the basics of providing access to safe water, livelihood opportunities, health, and education to Cambodian families.

Last Sunday I joined for the first time when I helped create a vegetable garden, planted fruit trees, built fences around the new trees and installed water filters.
