2910. INTERN. Veterinary Files From Myanmar. A water tank to provide clean water for the students

August 13, 2016

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Show him how to catch fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

"What is the most useful $300 present for a school?" I asked a Myanmar veterinarian. He
suggested exercise books, sharpeners and pencils.






Myanmar is a large country with around 50 million people.  Education of the young enables them to improve their lives. But many village schools need funds to buy writing material to educate the students.

Hence donations of exercise books and pencils are much appreciated as they are often short of supply.


In Oct 2015, Dr Sing Kong Yuen told his friend, Dr Thin Thin Soe that he wished to donate $300 worth of educational material to a government primary school.  Drs Thein Tun Aung and Thin Thin Soe, Myanmar veterinarians got the project done through the head monks of Hinthada.

165 students    Grades 1 to 6 in one building, sharing space. 

Head monks are the link between benefactors and recipients. Dr Thin Thin Soe and her 92-year-old mother donates money and exercise books and drink to the school on this occasion.
