The idea of starving, of not knowing what I’m going to eat tomorrow, is an idea that often doesn’t become a daily motto in our Western world. In Myanmar, things are very different at the moment. Just two years ago, the people in Mingun were still living off tourism and constantly developing, and were thus able to provide for their own daily subsistence. But that is very different now. The people are starving, do not know how to go on …
The situation in Myanmar is still very tense. But even in this situation we do not let ourselves get down. We were able to transfer a little money to Myanmar, so that our sponsored children and also a few elderly villagers could get a little money from us. A little spark of hope in a difficult situation. We think about the wonderful people in Myanmar every day and probably every night. We use all possibilities that are in our power …
On April 21, we received the terse message from Win Aung “Today, We took out the network accessories from the Mandalay DHL office. “Seven boxes packed with IT equipment (mostly access points, switches, routers, firewalls) had arrived. We had little hope that we would ever be able to retrieve the material. This short sentence sounded unbelievably good and was still visually “authenticated” by three photos. It was the second large donation of IT components that Thomas Stöcklin had procured. It …
A big thank you to all donors. On the pictures you can see that your money has arrived and is well invested: The pictures speak for themselves 1.

Das ist besonders schlimm in einem Land mit einem unterentwickelten Gesundheitssystem und in der Mehrzahl prekären Jobs. Aus vielen Berichten unserer Mitarbeiter und Patenkinder hat die Patenkinderbeauftragte im Vorstand des Fördervereins, Brigitte Falkenstein, …
Patenkinder in Mingun nach Verteilung der Masken / Godchildren in Mingun after distribution of masks   A big thank you is given to our member Mr. Hartkamp. He has organized the delivery of 600 mouth-nose-masks, which were sent from China directly to Dr Tin Shein from the school clinic of Phaung Daw Oo (PDO). This is a great contribution to avoid the spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus. The masks have been distributed already. One part remains for the school clinic, another …
  Only a few days after the start of the fundraising campaign, enough money had already been received to make a first transfer to Myanmar. Immediately rice, eggs, oil and salt were bought and distributed. Win Aung sent us a series of photos and a report. Both can be found below. Of course the fundraising campaign continues. At the end of this article you will find the “donation button”. Many thanks in advance. 18. April 2020 kb Win Aung wrote: …
