During the recent Christmas holidays, St. Michael’s Catholic Academy Freshman Quentin Bentzin and his family traveled to Siem Reap, Cambodia, on a family service trip and volunteer vacation with Globe Aware.

The group of 14 did a variety of service work, including assembling wheelchairs donated by www.freewheelchairmission.org and then delivering them to disabled Cambodians.

Pictured at right is Quentin mixing concrete for the floor of a village water pump. Quentin is also pictured with a young Cambodian girl whose bedroom the group had painted and furnished.

Siem Reap is the capital city of Siem Reap Province in northwestern Cambodia and is also home to the famous Angkor Wat temple.

“This trip was an incredible opportunity for my family to learn about Southeast Asia while helping others,” Bentzin commented.
