The PFK 2019 Myanmar Mission Trip is completed and was a great success!
Our team of 6 volunteers from the U.S. made the annual trip to Yangon to deliver our gifts of backpacks filed with school supplies and a school uniform to 510 children in the Yangon province. Working with our Myanmar Chapter Board and many local friends and volunteers, we brought these gifts to 3 orphan homes, 2 monastic nunneries and 1 local community school over a two-day period.
All of our children either are orphans or come from families who earn approximarely USD $1 per day. The cost of one school uniform is roughly 1/3 of the monthly income for most of our families. So our gifts are well-needed and very much appreciated!
Big thanks to our sponsors; Belmond Governor's Residence, Cathay Pacific Airways and Diethelm Travel...we couldn't accomplish this mission trip without your support!
See our photos below of some of the very happy children who received all that they need to attend school and thrive!
We are now working on our 2nd Annual Charity Golf Classic in Yangon, to be held on Friday, November 1st! Come join us and play!

Myanmar Here We Come!
By Retta Jitner - Founder & CEO
PFK's 11th Annual Charity Golf Classic in LA!
The PFK team is in the final stages of preparing for our annual mission trip to Myanmar and serving 500 kids with backpacks filled withe school supplies and a school uniform.
Our cargo of love has been shipped out by our wonderful cargo sponsor, Cathay Pacific Airways, and should arrive in Asia in a few days. Donated pens, journals, erasers and toothbrushes were shipped and the remaining school supplies of pencils, color pencils, notebooks, pencil cases, rulers, drawing pads, color markers, pencil sharpeners and more will be purchased locally in Yangon.
Our school uniforms have been ordered and will be ready when we arrive at end of month. For the orphan girls living in monastic nunneries, we have paid the Nuns to make new monastic robes for the girls...so the girls recieve new robes, and the Nuns receive an income that will better assist the girls they so lovingly care for.
PFK has our annual charity Golf Classic in one week, and some of the proceeds will help fund this year's mission trip to Myanmar. We are very excited and looking forward to a great day with 100+ golfers...all coming out to help the kids! Fantastic!
On November 2nd, PFK held our first annual Charity Golf Classic in Yangon....and it was a great success! Held at the beautiful Pun Hlaing Golf Club we had over 80 golfers join us for a wonderful day of golf and fundraising all for our Myanmar kids.
The course was filled with community and business leaders from all industries; finance, telecommunications, hospitality, travel, legal, trandsportation and more, who came out to learn and support PFK's mission in Myanmar. We were honored to have sponsors partner with us to increase PFK's success and offer more enjoyment for the players with; hosted brunch cocktails, beer stops, lunch time snacks, "lemonade stands", a USD $10K Hole In One Prize...and more!
The event was a great success in bringing our mission to the forefront to key corporate prospects who are now keenly interested to aid PFK and help us grow in the country.
We look forward to next year's Golf Classic and even more success!
