Due to the outbreak of Covid cases in April we had to pause our regular visits to the Burma Children Medical Fund's B.K. Kee Patient House. Still, CMIRC member Nick and I have been making supply drops every other week. Some of the items we bring are laundry soap, toothpaste, fresh fruit and varieties of noodle cup soups. This past delivery we also brought them some materials to work on for their English Language Learning binders. (Numbers 0-5)
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the generous contributions that Rotarian Raphael has made recently for our supply drops. Thank you Raphael!
On our most recent drop off we were informed that the patients had begun a new sewing project using some curtain fabric that had been donated by the students at Chiang Mai International School, (CMIS). It’s nice to see the residents of B.K.Kee House continue to develop their skills in creative ways. (bookbag, above)
Previously, we were pleased to report that one of the younger male patients had shown an interest in the guitar that one of the CMIS students had brought on a prior visit. The student donated the guitar and it was a pleasant surprise to find out that (BCMF) employee Klao knows how to play.
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 that regular visits may resume, I’ll be sure to let CMIRC members know.
