Before, during and after SPZP-2012, Saya U Moe Aung floated the idea of Swel Daw Yeik Foundation to help alumni (past, present and future) and to take care of the health of eligible sayas and sayamas.
U Khin Maung Tun (T78) not only seconded the idea but showed his commitment by donating and or pledging Kyat 1500+ Lakhs for SDYF.
As President of SDYF, he hosted meetings (with sumptuous lunch) and entertainment. He expressed his desire to retire after a couple of terms, but the EC members politely declined.
He performed a song at SPZP-2016 with Saya U Moe Aung.
I met U Khin Maung Tun and his spouse at the 2015 Alumni Reunion in Los Angeles, and again at a dinner gathering in San Francisco to welcome Sayagyi Dr. Aung Gyi and visitors from Yangon.
U Khin Maung Tun gave me a “Htet Linn” bag with some indigenous medicine and an MP3 player loaded with dhamma talks.
U Khin Maung Tun and family provided “Eye Care” for eligible sayas and sayamas. They have transferred the balance of the Eye Care Fund to Swel Daw Yeik Foundation.
U Khin Maung Tun donated for the SPZP-2012, Shwe YaDu and SPZP-2016 celebrations.
