SAM Charity Visit 2020
SAM Charity Visit to Vi Tha Khar (Nunnery Teaching Women School)
On Thursday, the 12th of March, the Charity Committee visited Vi Tha Khar (Nunnery Teaching Women School) to inspect their operations and also to give them a special donation of 8,134,800MMK on behalf of members and donors of the Singapore Association of Myanmar.
Vi Tha Khar was one of the two charities selected by SAM to receive this sponsorship, out of the 12 charities who submitted proposals for additional funding for special projects.
These projects had to centre around the theme of bettering the welfare of children/youth through education, programs, provision of basic needs, materials, equipment and facilities.
Vi Tha Khar currently looks after 150 students who make up mostly of orphans and abandoned children and provides room and board throughout the year. This fund that we are donating will pay for meals over a period of 6 Months which comes to Ks. 1,355,800/Month.
Our inspection revealed that the orphanage has a number of areas for improvement but we also recognize that the nuns are doing the best that they can.
We hope to support them more in the future with practical assistance besides donations. If there are any members who are interested to join us in this effort, please let us know. Thank you.
