By Susan Tileston - Director, MSppa / Project Leader Feeding Orphans
While we are all under lock-down to varying degrees in Thailand, Myanmar, and Canada, our colleagues at Social Action for Women (SAW) are doing their best to provide for the 80 + orphans under their care.
I left Thailand for Canada at the end of March just as the borders were in the process of closing. Since then I have been in touch with Ko Myo, our SAW liason person, on a regular basis. Donations, which were on a downward trend before the pandemic, saw a drastic drop in April and May.
At this writing, the children have an adequate diet, with the help of greens they are growing themselves. We are also in the process of transferring some of the funds you have raised to SAW for the purchase of more dairy and meat provisions.
The Thai border is still closed to most foreigners, but I am hopeful that I will be able to return in December. Stay tuned!
SAW and the children thank you for your continuing support,
