Excursion of the orphans to the zoo and Citypark

excursion-cityparkIt began with a proposal by Günter Hoffmann (He is a board member of the Förderverein Help Myanmar eV), which  now became an institution: To offer  something special to the orphans from the school hostel, the Ethnic House and the Golden Houses. This year (mid-May) it was an excursion  to the zoo, the City Park and the most famous Pagoda ofMandalay, the Mahamuni Pagoda.
