Fast forward 5 years, and the Spitlers and Sarin now head the Spitler School Foundation, responsible for two full educational compounds in that village that provide daily learning, English lessons, computer training, and annual medical services to over 1,000 children every year.
They are currently facing some financial difficulties trying to raise funds to keep paying their lease so they can provide for these 37 children.
The Spitlers donate the 0 necessary to build a well for the village, and a serendipitous partnership between Sarin and the Spitlers was formed.
One well turned into two and pretty soon, they were collaborating on taking over and rebuilding the defunct school in the village.
A 43-year-old village security guard in Kampong Speu province has been arrested for beating his wife and trashing their house after she refused to have sex with him on Saturday night. He was arrested on Sunday after his wife Nay Ky, 35, filed a police complaint about his behaviour.
Provincial police officer Leng Kimlong said the man blamed his outburst on the fact his wife denied him sex.
