Charles Engelken and the Family of Orval Engelken along with Ross Worley,
are the Founders of the Library of Laos Project. In March, 2004 the first Library in Pakse, Laos was dedicated.
They have been generous sponsors of our work in Southeast Asia since November 2002.
Charlie's infectious sense of humor and big heart will be missed by everybody in this foundation.
They have touched many lives across Southeast Asia---this was a life well-lived, the kids of Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia have lost a friend.
Charlie, your legacy of hope lives.
