In 2013, a crisis that frequently occurs in Myanmar, happened to a family with 4 children in that area. The mother died. Soon after the father realized that he could not raise his children, he was too poor. If and when he went to work, they would be left alone and eventually would not survive. He heard that the Abbott, Sayathaw, was taking children in trouble, to care for and educate them in his Monastic Education Centre. Arrangements were made and he “sold”, transferred the care of his 4 children to Sayathaw for a token amount, for life.
The children were: Kyaw Kyaw, a boy, 3 years old
Cherry Thin, a girl, 2 years old
Htar Htar Eie, a girl, 1 year old
Htar Htar Khin, a girl, 1 month old, still being breastfed.
When Sayathaw brought the children to the monastery, his sister, the nun, took them into her home. The extra space was then being filled and used with love and compassion. The children have since thrived and are happy and healthy.
With 7 young children to care for in her home, the nun enlisted a middle aged lady (mother of San Da, 1 of the school teachers), and a 20 year old illiterate and homeless girl, to help her. These 3 ladies provide total care to the 7 orphans given to them by the powers that be, through the hands of a man who has committed his life to rescuing children.
The 7 children now range in age 3 to 6 years. They are thriving, healthy and happy.This is a remarkable testament to the LOVE, CARING, and SHARING that the 3 ladies have for their unfortunate fellow mankind.
Nothing on earth, natural or man made, is more beautiful than this.
KAWPAN LAN MEDICAL CENTRE – is critically needed to provide healthcare and health education to all the surrounding villages, the Education Centre and the orphanage.
MMC is working with Sayathaw to develop this very necessary facility.
Please help MMC develop this medical centre which will decrease unnecessary suffering and prevent many deaths.
