Who would of imagined that even as we wrote to you last we, our collective global communtiy, would find ourselves here! We sincerly hope that you are safe and well and riding out these uncertain times as best as you can. Despite all the challenges we are hopeful that maybe good things will come out of all of this too, we've seen more compassion, understanding and respect amongst our local community - have you too?
As the world was paused for the past few months we do not have much to update you on but simply wanted to send you a message to see how you are and let you know how our friends are doing. We've been in regular contact with the communities we work with in South-East Asia and whilst Covid-19 has had a significant impact on the availablilty of seasonal work they heavily rely on there have so far been no active casses in Koung Jor or in our out reach education project villages in Myanmar. Harvesting garlic is for most families the only income opportunity available and seeing as restrictions were put in place so camp residents could not leave the camp to work in the fields many missed out on this seasonal work for this year.
We totally appreciate these a rough and for many tight times BUT if you do find yourself in a position with a little extra to spare please consider donating so we can help those that are vulnerable and struggling with the support they need during this time.
