Due to the outbreak of Covid cases we are still just making supply deliveries every other Sunday to the Burma Children Medical Fund B.K. Kee Patient House. On one of our recent visits, it was relayed to us that the patients really miss the regular activities we normally do, especially bingo for prizes.
When we had to stop making our usual visits, we were scheduled to have a birthday party for all the patients and caregivers with birthdays in the first four months of the year. (A party for each trimester) Nick and I decided that as a way to lift their spirits, a party was long overdue, so we are planning one for the last Sunday in August. By the time this update is posted in our monthly bulletin, we will have sent out a request for presents. The project’s budget will pay for the cake, decorations, and food.
Unfortunately, we will still be unable to stay and celebrate the event, but employee Klao will take some photos that we’ll share on Line as well as in next month’s update. Thank you in advance to those who will be purchasing birthday gifts for the patients and caregivers.
During our most recent visit, employee Klao announced the event; everyone is definitely looking forward to it.
In the photos accompanying this article you can see that the patients are making the most of their time at the house. They continue to work on their sewing skills, tend to the garden and engage in leisure activities.
At this time as previously mentioned we are no longer making regular visits to the house, only supply drops. As soon as the situation improves, and we are instructed when visits may resume, I’ll be sure to let members know. Many thanks to CMIRC members Raphael and Nick for their generous donations of snack items!
