It was a hot day, but everyone had a smile on their face despite the heat. The lunch bell rang and everyone eagerly began to make their way to the dining room. The meal was to be a special one, with an ice cream treat happily served at the end.
The month of April brings about the Thingyan Festival in Myanmar. A very special celebration, Thingyan marks both the water festival and the Myanmar New Year. During this time it’s common for people to make donations and spend time meditating at monasteries. At KT Care we decided we wanted to make a donation that would have a positive effect on as many people as possible. For our Thingyan donation we choose to donate both items, such as clothes and games, as well as money to the Disabled Care Unit in Yangon.
