The Moegyo team visited two orphanages

The Moegyo team started the year 2010 with two visits to two orphanages in Myanmar and donated money, food and school supplies to nearly one thousand orphans and poor children.

One of the orphanages, Mya Thein Gi Orphanage in Yangon vicinity, houses 98 orphans and provides free education to nearly 400 children from the area. On the visit, the Moegyo team provided lunch to the children, and gave snacks, pencils and pens, blank exercise books, and toys. Moegyo also donated money for their day to day operations.

The second orphanage, Mingalar Orphanage in Twentay, houses nearly 280 children with 300 children coming from the area. Mingalar Orphanage is located in Phayargyi Village in the Twentay Township which is about 1.5 hour drive from Yangon. The orphanage is located inside the Phayargyi Mingalar Monastery and is situated on a land of 12 acres. The compound has a total of 8 buildings. The Moegyo team donated money for their daily operations.

It was a very satisfying visit for us. We had a chance to witness how well the orphanage was running, watching the kids play in the compound on a lazy Sunday was priceless. We were extremely glad to see healthy and happy kids there. The orphanage seems to run very well with the help of volunteers, teachers and the head monk. We were amazed that they manage to feed 600+ kids every day with no guarantee donor every month yet they make it every month somehow.
