Music for Myanmar returns to Yangon on 10th October at the Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon with charity evening starring Italian singing star Matteo Setti and with a guest appearance by Myanmar celebrity Chan Chan. A big thank you to all our partners including #DELCO and KHG Development for sponsoring the 2015 #MusicforMyanmar charity concert.
Their efforts and unreserved support will help deaf, orphaned and disadvantaged children in Myanmar, including the children of the #MaryChapman School for the Deaf in Yangon – here at the inauguration of their new #Mudita Beauty Salon.
Over 450 flowering plants, vegetable-garden plants and herbs were donated by Expo Gate and went on sale to the public on the Expo Gate Square outside Milan’s Sforza Castle to help disadvantaged children in Myanmar, especially the deaf and dumb children in the Mary Chapman School in Yangon and the orphans in the Parami Orphanage in Dala.
Link for Aid thanks Giovanni Rivolta and Nicoletta Savioni, Paola Pescetelli and the many other people who made this possible, and our friends who helped with the sale and came along to buy plants.
On Sunday 2nd November Samrong Village near Angkor Wat welcomed Link for Aid. We donated uniforms and bicycles to over 30 children, allowing them to attend school. The ceremony was attended by Samnang Chhon, founder of the Angkok Kid’s Centre, Pamela McCourt Francescone, founder of Link for Aid, representatives from Samrong Village, the local state primary school and the province. Thanks to Francesca Moscheni, one of the founders of Link for Aid, and her friends in Milan we also donated over 100 new books to the Angkor Kid’s Centre Children’s Library.
A group of children from Samnong village spent a day at the Paul Dubrule hospitality school in Siem Reap, sponsored by Link for Aid. They were introduced to the school’s curriculum and activities. Here they are on the bus
and then, on the way home, when they stopped for refreshments, and some music, at the moat in Angkor Wat. We hope this day inspired them and that many of them will want to enter the tourism industry which has a need of professionally-trained young Cambodians.
