“We are facing difficulties to care needy ethnic orphans from different backgrounds,” said U Kawwida, the abbot of a monastic school in a village in Bago Region, inviting well-wishers to support them.
Located in Ohnchan Village one mile far from northwest of Swa Township in Bago Region, the monastic school has received orphans for last three months in order to educate them and fulfil their needs.
“Normally, we feed 85 school children at a cost of over K100,000 (US$82) per day,” the Sayadaw said.
Although local philanthropic organisations have provided support to the children, they need safe buildings. Currently, all students reside in temporary shelters.
There are only over 20 households in Ohnchan Village and villagers also help those children as much as they can, the Sayadaw added.
