We all have been suffering from Covid, yet imagine having to deal on top of it with a violent military coup and a huge economic crisis at the same time. I am Dutch citizen, living in Myanmar for over 15 years and really got to know the most friendly and generous people on earth. However, now it's time to do something back from this beautiful country as families all around the country are suffering and need support.
I was running a sustainable travel agency and an ecolodge, yet tourism isn't possible at the moment so we're using our network throughout the country and colleagues to buy food and support the poorest families who need simple basic food as rice, cooking oil, onions, garlic and noodles. Additionally we give some cash money to buy fresh vegetables at the local market. Any overhead and transportation costs are covered by our travel agency so your full donation is used to buy food. The sum of 100 Euro can feed a family of 4 for a whole month.
Since we started the campaign with partners around the world we managed to buy enough food for over 100.000 meals around the country yet more is needed. People can't access their bank accounts (if they have any) as these are blocked by the banks, many have lost their jobs and a lot of people have been spending their savings to buy oxygen & medicines for family members who suffered from Covid-19.
I do hope you can help me raising more money to support more families throughout the country. Any bit helps and is very, very much appreciated!
