2012 Moegyo team field trips in Myanmar

In 2012, Moegyo team made visits to the following orphanages and schools that we are giving on-going support with your contributions since the end of 2008.

Mya Theingi Nunnery
Pyinnyar Waddy Nunnery
Kani Orphanage
Pay Gyaung Orphanage
Mingalar Orphanage

January 2012, Mya Theingi Nunnery, Mingalardon, Yangon

Moegyo team visited Mya Theingi Nunnery in Mingalardon Township in Yangon, learned the conditions of the children and progress of the nunnery and donated 105,000 Kyats on top of the monthly support. Please see the photos here.

December 2012, Pyinnyar Waddy Nunnery, Kyite Latt, Ayeyarwaddy

Moegyo team visited Pyinnyar Waddy Nunnery in Kyite Latt. We learned that the living condition of the girls was improved by the new buildings and the girls were making good progress in school. Two of the girls are going to college and one is in the last year of high school. Four older girls are earning money from sewing business that help support them with tuition fees. On top of the monthly donation, we donated 60 dozen exercise books, pens, pencils and snacks for the girls. We also donated an automatic pattern making machine and sewing supplies to enhance their self sustaining sewing business. Please see the photos here.

December 2012, Pay Gyaung Parahita, Pay Gyaung village, Kyite Latt, Ayeyarwaddy

Moegyo team took a two-hour boat ride from Kyite Latt to visit the "Zawtika" school in Pay Gyaung village since no road goes to this place. We saw that the children were having brunch with only one soupy dish made of bean and vegetable. Since this place is hard to reach, only a few donors come by in a year and that they typically have only two meals a day. Our monthly donation alone could only go as far as providing them with rice and beans. On top of the monthly donation, we donated 30 dozen exercise books, pens and snacks for the children. We also arranged to send them one more pair of clothing since we learned that they have only one pair. Please see the photos here.

December 2012, Mya Theingi Nunnery, Mingalardon, Yangon

Moegyo team visited Mya Theingi Nunnery in the outskirts of Yangon, saw that more students enrolled as the condition of the classrooms improved and more teachers were made available. On top of the monthly donation, we donated 60 dozen exercise books for the children. Please see the photos here.

December 2012, Kani Parahita, Kani village, Pyapon, Ayeyarwaddy

Moegyo team took a bumpy ride on some flood damaged roads to visit Kani Parahita in Pyapon in December 2012. On the way, we saw heavy rain damaged paddy fields and overflowed fish farms. We reached the orphanage by lunch time and saw the children about to have lunch.  After lunch time, we were delighted to meet all the college students that we've been supporting with scholarships. When we saw 3 rows of college students, 1st to 3rd year, we realized then that the years fly by so fast. We've been supporting them for four years since their last year of high school and the ones in the first row are to be in their final year of college. They went on to show us around in the compound of a building being constructed by German donors, a newly built building stocked with a computer room also by the same donors, and nearby high school that needs new building due to flood and heavy rain damage. We then donated monthly donations, scholarship money for last year high school students and college students and 60 dozen exercise books for all the students. Please see the photos here.

December 2012, Mingalar Orphanage, Phayagyi village, Twentay Township

Moegyo team visited Mingalar orphanage and saw the condition of the school and the children and donated 30 dozen exercise books on top of the monthly donations. Please see the photos here.


We want to thank our donors for continued support and opportunity for us to help shape the lives of those children for the better. We also want to thank those who are in the field taking part in this great cause. There are many children who need our support and care. Together, we can make a difference in many young lives.

Moegyo made donation to help earthquake victims from Shwebo, Myanmar

The Moegyo team sent donation to assist and to help Shwebo earthquake victims through Myanmar Social Development Network in Yangon, Myanmar.

The magnitude of 6.8 earthquake hit near the northeast of Shwebo, Myanmar on 11 November 2012.  Damage was reported from Shwebo, Mogok and Mandalay.  From the local Myanmar news agencies, many buildings, including monasteries, pagodas, a hospital, and a school collapsed in neighbouring towns and villages from Shwebo.  The Radana Thinga Bridge, which was still under construction, fell into the Irrawaddy River, and several workers went missing.

The Myanmar Social Development Network launched the relief effort to provide basic needs to the the families from effected area in Shwebo area.  Their team also coordinated with other local teams to provide necessary assistance to the earthquake victims in other effected locations near Mandalay.
