Update posted by Heidi Madsen On May 23, 2020

Went shopping today for noodles, rice, onions and eggs. 2 trucks full of food for our big donation round tomorrow afternoon.

We bought food for more than 500 people. And it should last them all 7-10 days.

We expect it to be a even longer line of people than last time. The whole Same Same Team has as always been super supportive and excited about handing out food to others in need. It is quite amazing to see our team being so ready and engaged in helping others when they dont have too much themselves.

It really shows how caring these people are for each other.

We are so happy to get this opportunity to be able to help the community that is struggeling.

And it is off course ALL thanx to your generous donation!!!!

We were so grateful to be able to give donations to these Beautiful Burmese kids yesterday. It feels amazing to give to the kids that are the future of our society!

A society where hopefully Covid 19 one day will be a distant memory!

A society where the kids felt the care, kindness and love from an older generation. A lesson they hopefully will bring with them as they grow up and face new challenges.

To see people from all over the world getting together online, helping those in need! Is a valuable lesson we should all take with us from this Covid experience.

Our Big donation round is scheduled for the weekend. We can't wait to help more people in this time of need💕🍀❤

We are so happy with the massive support this fundraiser has recieved. It is so much more than we ever expected going into this. So we actually needed a bit of time to process the whole thing and to plan how to go from here.

It is simply amazing that we can help so much more people than we first expected! Now we are back on track and SO ready for more donations and many more full stomach!

We are have a staff meeting monday evening and planning all the details and shopping list for the next donation round that will be on sunday 24th of may.

Yesterday we packed the rest of the food donations, put it on a boat and went to the more remote beaches Haad Yuan and Why Nam to donate to the locals in need.

You can mostly reach these beaches by boat. So we thought it was better to bring the food to them. So they didn''t have to trek 1.5 hour our the mountain to get to us

Again we were met by some very happy and grateful people. We wish you coul see their faces when they recieve the food. It is such a special feeling.

Today we are taking a 1 day break to let all the feelings and experiences settle. It has been a very emotional week. And thanx to all of you we have been able to keep at least 500 people from beeing hungry in 10-14 days💙🙏

Alot of people have been texting us to say thank you for what we are doing. But honestly it is all thanx to your donations that we can do it.💙🙏🤗👌😊

❤It is very rare that we are speechless, but what we have witnessed today, has really put things in perspective and it is actually hard to put into words what we have experienced. The desperation for food is undescribable! In less than 20 minutes 450 kids and adults were waiting in line for food without any kind of advertising for this donation!!! These photos and videos can not justify what we have experienced today. We need you to see the importance and the need to help us help them! Thank you so much to those of you who made it possible to donate food today. Our fundraiser doesn't stop here there are still plenty of mouths to feed! When we had no more food to share our staff went to take from their own supplies. It is unity and charity that we have never experienced before!!!

Love Heidi Assi Madsen and ChristinaAndreasen❤
