Back from Habitat for Humanity Thailand

It was the experince of a lifetime for a group of Habitat for Humanity volunteers from this province. 12 people...digging holes, mixing concrete and laying bricks in the sweltering Thailand heat. They did it to help a family in need of a modest home. But what they get out of the experience was so much more than that. And now they're back on home soil. To tell us more about the build we have Brad Dillon of Labrador City on the phone this morning and Matt Pike of Happy Valley Goose Bay is here in our studio.
