As one of our contributors writes this month, there does appear to be light at the end of the tunnel in Chiang Mai. Municipal education administrators met with us in March and it appears that they plan to open schools in May after a one-year hiatus. Hurray! Our school-based programs can get back on track. Other programs have developed innovative ways to serve their clients.
And the weather is even cooperating. This has been the "kindest" smokey season in memory. Rain showers and/or strong winds every few days have kept the burning in check. While Covid cases remain high, deaths are low due to overall high vaccination rates. The Thai government is easing re-entry requirements and we look forward to welcoming our international "friends of CMIRC" again for their holiday visits.
