Life Vests for Teachers in Paletwa

We have donated urgently needed Life Vests to 20 teachers in the town of Paletwa in Chin Special Division, Myanmar. These teachers are risking their lives daily crossing Kaladan river to teach children on the other side of the town. One teacher was killed last month in a boat mishap in surging waters during heavy rains. A life jacket would have saved her life.

This donation was made possible by the help of our close friend Dr. Kyaw Nyunt (Patrick Sue) from Fremont who is now volunteering his time in Chin Special Division.

Many places are flooded in Myanmar by relentless heavy rains during this year’s Monsoon season.
