By Susan Tileston - Director, MSppa / Project Leader Feeding Orphans
It has now been 10 months since I have seen Ko MYo and SAW director Aye Aye Mar. Thank goodness for email and Zoom!
On February 8, schools were closed again after a brief reopening, due to a spike in Covid19 cases. To date, the pandemic has hit Mae Sot relatively lightIy, and the orphanage and staff are fine at this writing. The recent coup in Myanmar has added a level of stress, as many of the orphans have family there.
However, as our worlds have shrunk because of the pandemic and its immediate concerns, donations to this project have also diminished. Our partners at Social Action for Women are working hard to make sure that the children have a healthy food for their bodies and their brains!
While Thailand borders are still essentially closed, I remain in Canada. But as soon as they re-open, I will return to Mae Sot.
I know I sound like a broken record, but I know there will be light at the end of this tunnel! In the meantime, thank you for your continued interest and support.
