A LOCAL philanthropic organization in Nay Pyi Taw is looking for donors to provide necessary care to orphans and needy children.
Since its establishment in 1990 by two Buddhist monks, the home for needy children has hosted about 700 children from poor backgrounds.
Around 60 young babies,
40 preschool children, nearly 500 basic education students
and 41 university students have been accommodated at the home.
Located four miles from Thawuthti, a town in Lewe Township, the home for orphans also provides over 100 needy children from nearby villages with education assistance and livelihood training, including computer and sewing courses.
A basic education school has opened within the compound of the monastery to provide better education services for those children.
With the contribution of local well-wishers, the abbot normally spends around K600,000 on food a day. Additional donors are needed to participate in the philanthropic activities.
