Laos has a population of 6.5 million, and is one of the poorest country in the world.
FFM made its recce trip to Laos in Feb 2013, where we met our local coordinator, Peter Tan, who has worked/lived in Laos for 18 years. We visited several areas and noticed the poor conditions of the schools that need urgent help.
Following the visit, Firefly Mission built the first school in middle of the year and completed in November 2013. The second school started in November 2013 and completed in February 2014. The third school started in May 2014 and completed in October 2014.
The Laos government recognizes the importance of education but, being a poor country, lack the financial resources to provide proper schools.
Firefly Mission appeals to our volunteers to support our efforts in providing safe and conducive schools for the children of Laos.

缅甸的“心桥”- J H Lim’s 心灵感悟
犹记两年多前，我随萤火之光常年探访缅甸时，因多次的接触，和 Kyugayet Village 的村长村民有深厚交情，在一次闲谈时，他们向我们表达一个意愿--希望建造一道坚固的桥，给邻近多个村落的村民有更完善的交通。接着多次和常驻缅甸的曾兄沟通后，我愿意出资建造这道桥，我感恩萤火之光大家庭给予我的支持和机会。历经两年的艰辛，钢骨水泥大桥终于在今年初大功告成！获知工程圆满完成的消息后，我内心激动且感动，兴奋之情非笔墨能形容！
