At the moment we are looking at how Caritas (Catholic Aid Agency) is helping Cambodia during the season of Lent. We have learnt a lot about the country and culture of Cambodia including that New Zealand is about one and a half times bigger in terms of land area and that there are many amazing temples (wats) and shrines in Cambodia.
As an activity we are making prayer flags. In many Buddhist countries such as Cambodia, prayer flags can be seen fluttering from the top of the temples. The brightly covered flags display messages of peace and joy and the prayers are blown by the wind to reach people far away.
