Another recipient of KT Care’s Charity Program is Daw Naw Say Phaw. She is a 78 years old grandma with positive outlook to life. Despite having seven children, Daw Naw Say Phaw lives alone as her children are busy taking care of their own families which put her in a situation to be taken care of by her neighbours. For daily meals, she has to borrow money from neighbours or buy food from local shops with credit. She said that her neighbours are willing to lend her money because she always gives it back once she received money occasionally. When we went to check her situation, we were amazed by her positivity and how she spends her daily life.

There are a total of 53 disadvantaged children from Chin, Kachin, Shan and Kayah. According to Sayarma Hnin Wai (person in charge for MCH), most donors donate clothes for girls resulting in insufficiency of boys’ clothes as there’s a higher number of boys in MCH. They need support to buy school materials for students especially for high school students. Any kind of help would be a great deal to them. We encourage everyone to go and support Mercy Children Home.
