1st Overseas Mission – Song of Apsaras
Humanitarian Mission – Yangon & Mandalay, the Union of Myanmar

In 2001, partnering with Burmese Buddhist Temple, Kong Meng San Phor Khark See Monastery, National University of Singapore Buddhist Society and Palelai Buddhist Temple; we embarked on the “Song of Apsaras 2001” humanitarian mission to the Union of Myanmar.
The project was divided into the Community Welfare & Education, & the Hearing Aids Project. Over 50 volunteers from our sponsoring organizations took part in this meaningful mission.

Community Welfare & Education Project

Over 30 volunteers brought joy & happiness to more than 10 orphanages, schools (inc. special schools for the deaf, blinds & disabled) and monasteries.
S$20,000 worth of goods was donated (medicine, milk powders, books, stationeries, cloth, computers, printers, toys etc).
Another S$15,000 went to building a village school, constructing a deep-well for drinking and purchasing a power generator for a school.

Hearing Aids Project

The Hearing Aids team, which comprised of over 20 volunteers, of whom majority are medical students at the National University of Singapore and a surgeon.
They provided screening test and helped in the selection of recipients for the 260 sets of hearing aids. Two sets of hearing test equipments were donated to the Dept. of ENT Surgery, Yangon General Hospital.
In December 2001, 2 doctors and an audiologist were sponsored for the trainers’ training program at the Siemens Medical Instruments, Singapore, by the Song of Apsaras 2001.
