Then the ones who pleased the Lord will ask, "When did we give you something to eat or drink? When did we welcome you as a stranger or give you clothes to wear or visit you while you were sick or in jail?"
The King will answer, "Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me." .......Matthew 25

They eat dogs don't they, in Cambodia?
They were a surprisingly happy bunch of kids despite their poverty and looking at them play, I couldn't help wondering why our kids in Singapore don't play with as much abandon and freedom of spirit as these poor kids did. It was certainly food for thought. And perhaps we should be careful about trying to impose our more materialistic ideas about needs and happiness on them. Their zest and joy were quite infectious, and the puppies also became darlings of the NTU students (Project L.O.V.E.).
Clearly happiness and joy are able to cross language barriers, and do not need words to be shared.
