The social standards such as the education, the health, the social development of our Ayeyarwady division developed much because of the beneficial work programs of the Firefly Mission after Cyclone Nargis. Therefore, local people including Venerable Chief Sayardaws (Sanghas) were so glad. Special thanks to you all.

 

From 2008 which was after Cyclone Nargis, we began to carry out the reconstructive programs (establishment) especially Schools, Wells and Ponds, Latrines, Folk Clinics and Stream-crossing bridges. As you all know that it contributes to the good things of the villages. Now we describe briefly as following for Firefly Mission and the donators to be glad.

The three-story building school in YoteSaing Village, Bogalay Township which is the last project will be completed soon. Six hundred students are learning there. Very soon, they can be able to learn the lessons cheerfully in the new building of Firefly Mission

 

Besides, after Cyclone Nargis, most of the villages in delta regions faced with the water difficulties due to the shortage of water and salt water when the summer came. To be able to solve this condition, the association of Firefly Mission dug the wells which are above 500 feet including underground water, lake, engine motor and the compressor. Therefore, we are convenient much. We feel glad and proud for the donation of water which is essential to human beings. They went to the places where fresh water was not available and dug the wells and lakes which were above 500feet for over 90 villages. May you say Sadu Sadu Sadu.

 

Then, eye patients increased because of the side effects of the Cyclone Nargis. They cannot be able to treat the ophthalmic because they struggle with the foods and shelters. That’s why; Pantanaw Venerable Sayadaw U Kumara and I (monk) tried to look for the donators and made the first operation for them. Afterwards, the association of Firefly Mission donated annually the costs of the treatment and so free of charge treatment could be made annually and continuously from the 2nd time to the present year 2015. Operation Room was donated by the association of Firefly Mission where Eye Special Doctor, Sa J Lwin and his followers treated with full generosity.

 

In 7th operation, we can treat 1098 eyes patients and can support eye drops, medicines and drugs to 9120 patients as far as possible.

 

We witnessed that the one who was blindgot vision again and felt content. It is sure that the more they feel well, the more they make wish for the association of the Firefly Mission.Firefly Mission always did the memorable things in their life.

 

In conclusion, we send the records that we carried out by the donation of Firefly Mission. We send this in order to feel you glad for your own good deeds and donation and whenever you think, you improve your good merits. We feel glad much because we can carry out things for such kinds of merits.

 

If you do not understand well, you may ask again.

 

May all the brothers and sisters of Firefly Mission carry out the volunteering works that is beneficial to others happily and cheerfully!

 

May all be peaceful!

 

With Metta!

 

Representative for all
