#MusicforMyanmar 2015 raised funds that were donated, by #LinkforAid’s partner #Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon, to the Nawarat Monastery School in Shwe Pyi That for this new building for the hundreds of children who attend the school. And we made a donation to #MyanmarTourismMarketing to build facilities for a school for children in Rakhine state which had suffered severe flooding. Our donation paid for the building of these new sanitary and water facilities.
With the funds raised by #MusicforMyanmar 2015, #LinkforAid also sponsored a Motorcycle Repairs Training Course for 20 boys in their last year at the #MaryChapman for the Deaf in Yangon. They learned how to repair engines, tyres and other accessories and also small household appliances like kettles and cooking stoves.
From the funds raised by #MusicforMyanmar 2015, #LinkforAid sponsored the purchase of a new motorcycle for the #Parami Orphanage in Dala. With the cash earned from the rental of the motorcycle the orphanage can cover 70% of the monthly cost of rice for the little community. In the photo Mamma Mrs Phyu Phyu and some of the 23 children in Parami.
On the Sunday morning after the Music for Myanmar charity concert Matteo crossed the Yangon river by ferry to visit the Parami Orphanage and sang for the children who happily joined in. Click here to hear Matteo singing MATTEO SINGS AT PARAMI And on the board he leaves a beautiful message for the children: “LOVE IS THE ANSWER”
