Myanmar Children Sponsorship Programme

Myanmar Children Sponsorship Programme
缅甸儿童赞助计划

This sponsorship programme is in support of children who come from extremely poor families who are unable to support their livelihood and education as well as children who were orphaned by Cyclone Nagis which hit Myanmar in May 2008 and was the worst natural disaster recorded in Myanmar causing catastrophic destruction with some 138,000 fatalities reported.  The Children’s Hostel located in Shwegyin is managed by Parahita (Charitable) Monastery.

The sponsorship programme started in March 2009 with 50 children and has increased to 150 children in 2014.  The sponsorships are available for renewal from January 2015 onwards.

2008年5月台风Nagis袭击缅甸时,严重的自然灾害造成了138,000人死亡。当时千家万户被大水冲毁,妻离子散,家破人亡,幸存的孩童们顿时变成了孤儿。这个项目主要是帮助那些来自特别贫困家庭的孩童和无亲无故孩童们的基本生活和教育经费。这些获得赞助的孩童都被安排住在瑞金(Shwegyin)的儿童宿舍,这所宿舍是由慈善寺(Parahita)管理。

在2009年3月开始,最初得到赞助的只是50名孩童,现在已增加至150名。
