2012 was yet again filled with exciting stories to share. As we end the year, the Moegyo Team would like to take this opportunity to thank, on behalf of the orphans and vulnerable childrens in Myanmar (Burma), to all donors for their generosity and to all contributors, supporters and volunteers for their dedication and commitment. A special note also to thank the Moegyo volunteers in Myanmar to coordinate and execute projects and programs successfully in difficult-to-reach places and that the fund provided is spent effectively.
During the summer of 2012, the Moegyo Team organized two successful fundraising activities to support five orphanages and Moegyo (1) Basic Primary School in Myanmar.
1. 5th Annual Moegyo Food Fair in New York
2. 3rd Annual Moegyo Lawn Concert in Virginia
The milestone success story for the Moegyo Team in 2012 is the completion of Water Project. With the donations received, the Moegyo Team was able to complete the project in Panthapyay Palaung village, Northern Shan State. After Moegyo (1) Basic Primary School was completed in 2011, we have come to realize that clean water is required at the school and for the village for sanitation and health related reasons. The area was surveyed and located the water source from natural spring which is one and half miles away from the village. A dedicated Moegyo volunteer coordinated the project and teamed up with the villagers/volunteers to complete the project. Because of the running water available, the villagers, especially the children, were the least effected by the outbreak of Cholera in the summer of 2012. Read more here.
Aftermath of the Hurricane Sandy, the Moegyo volunteers provided assistance in recovery and clean-up effort at the Midland area in Staten Island, New York, where it hit the hardest. The foundation also sent donation to the American Red Cross for disaster relief fund for Hurricane Sandy.
During 2012, the Moegyo Team made field trips to all 5 orphanages that we have been supporting continually with your donations since the end of 2008. The team donated school supplies, clothing, sewing machines and supplies during the visit. The team also met with the students who we provided scholarships and discussed their future endeavors.

Moegyo Humanitarian Foundation also sent donation to help earthquake victims from towns and villages near Showbo, Myanmar through Myanmar Social Development Network in Yangon, Myanmar. The magnitude of 6.8 hit near Showbo and Mandalay on 11 November 2012. As a result of the earthquake, significant damage of buildings, bridges and some casualties were reported. Read more here.
Again, this would not have been possible without your generosity, continued support and dedication. Yet, many more children still need your care, love and support. We believe we can do a lot more in coming years, with you, from helping natural disaster relief efforts to improving the life of a child. Together, we can make a difference!
