Last month, I reported that we met at new 6-year-old patient at the Burma Children Medical Fund's B. K. Kee Patient House in Chiang Mai who was very shy. During her stay at the house, she became less withdrawn, as shown in the photo at right. She and her mother have now returned to their home, but she may be back for further follow up with her eye condition. We were able to spend some time with her and her mom in the sala.
We hope to have a wonderful Christmas party for the patients, their parents and the staff at BCMF B.K.Kee patient house. We would appreciate Christmas gifts with a cost of between 100 THB and 200 THB. (We want this to be fair to all concerned). People who may want to attend please let me know.
All members of CMIRC have already signed the Child Protection Policy. Visitors are required to sign the same document. It is available at on CMIRC Website. I will have copies available at the time of the party.
At this point it’s impossible to know how many patients will be at the house on 22 December. If we have more Christmas gifts than patients, we will send the extras to BCMF to give to other children they serve inside Myanmar.
The Christmas party at B.K. Kee Patient House last year -- it was wonderful!
We visit the house most Sundays, usually meeting at the Shell petrol station on Huay Kaew Road at 10:30 a.m. Usually we stay at the house until 12:30 or a bit later. Check CMIRC Calendar for confirmation. Time and days may change depending on the requirements of the B.K. Kee House.
If you want to make a financial donation to support the B.K.Kee House please contact Treasurer@cmirotary.org for details.
