What You May Have Missed in December 2020
The regular every other Sunday morning visits by club members to the patients and their families at Burma Children Medical Fund's B.K. Kee Patient House here in Chiang Mai where members socialize, play games, bring food and engage in craft projects with the patients and their families.
The regular pick-up of clothes and other items deposited in our Winter Clothing appeal boxes at the local Rimping and Makro stores and the delivery of these donations to the villages in the high-altitude villages in northern Thailand during the first week or two in December. (Above, Dylan and family members did a trip that took two days, delivering after dark to a remote village perched on a steep mountain a stone's throw from Laos.)
