Some of our PFK cherubs in Myanmar
Dear PFK Friends,
As many of you are well aware, the Myanmar military has staged a coup and declared a year-long national state of emergency. Please know our Board in Yangon, and the children in our program are all currrently safe and managing as best as possible in this uncertain and disruptive time.
This upheaval in democracy, in addition to the global pandemic, has slowed PFK down...but it has not stopped us in our mission to assist our wonderful children! We are pivoting and working out a new and safe way to fullfill our mission...and soon!
Please know while we are not allowed into the country at this time, we are working with our local network to distribute our gifts of backpacks, school supplies and school uniforms to our 525 children in the Yangon region. All items have been secured through local sources, nothing is being shipped due to the airport closure at this time.
As the country is under martial law in many areas and protests abound, it is not safe for our team to venture too far, or come into central Yangon. We hope in the next few weeks to coordinate our efforts and deliver our gifts to our children in Bago, Hmawbi and Thanlyin.
We remain in contact with our team and will assist in any way possible. Thank you for your continued support, our children need our assistance now, more than ever.
Miss these beautiful faces!
Our Founder and Myanmar Country Manager.
Sharing love and joy!
