Kyo Chen 庄仲维 and Ong Ai Leng 王爱玲 were the first couple who started their mission for Listen to the World. Both Kyo and Ai Leng made their way up to Thailand to meet with representatives from a Non-Government Organisation (NGO), Warm Heart, and discovered the wild nature that's hidden in the mysterious Phrao Mountain. They were also given the opportunity to experience the lifestyle of the locals, while trailing a group of clinic workers hailing from the mountains to enter the village of Mae Sariang, in which both Kyo and Ai Leng embraced the real life of being a villager where water and electricity is severely limited.
Here's a sneak peek of Listen to the World 聆听世界 featuring Kyo and Ai leng's trip to Mae Sariang, Thailand:
Kyo did share his experience of finding difficulties to use the toilet as a family of 9 members only have one single toilet to use. Ai Leng's restaurant Xiao Bar Wang has raised funds on 26 May to contribute the funds collected on the day for building of six toilets and provide myopia test for the Phrao children. Kyo found a friend who are willing to sponsor 500 lenses for the Mae Sariang residents as well.
