Beds for Burma – target reached!

Posted on: May 27, 2012

Thanks to the generosity of family and friends in Perth we successfully raised AUS $2000 for Sisters of the Good Shepherd convent in Burma.  The funds were transferred and have reached the head Sister (at exchange rate 1:810).

Dear Valentina,

Right after you called me they came to deliver the money. I received 1,620,000 kyats. Thanks for your kind support. I really appreciate your hard work. We will start to get things soon and when it is ready, I will give you news and photos.

God bless.


The cupcakes fundraising drive is still going and there are still a few people with outstanding pledges, so we will send through round II in the very near future.  The Sister has made enquiries about the purchase of the beds and so hopefully the healthcare building can open soon.  Thank you all for your great effort.
