Dr Sann Sann Memorial Playroom

Update posted by Donna Yay On Jan 02, 2017

Hi all,

Apologies for the lack of news on my part - we experienced some unforeseen setbacks but we are now back on track! We were disappointed that it has not been possible to build the playroom Yangon Children's Hospital but we are delighted to tell you that we have secured a room at the Yankin Children's Hospital instead. The hospital is also in Yangon and is where our cousin now works as a paediatric surgeon. Works are now underway!!

Here are some photos of the room. I have asked for more photos of the works in progress so you can see the playroom taking shape.

27th December was the anniversary of mum's passing and Su and her family went back to Burma to commemorate the date with our extended family. They donated food parcels to 300 patients of Yangon Children's Hospital and their families. Apparently mum often used to do donations like that when she was home, which we didn't know! Thanks so much to our wonderful cousins for arranging it.

Thanks also to all of you for helping us to make the playroom a reality. I'm really pleased to be able to give you some news finally and look forward to sending more photos of the works underway.


Finally, we wish you all a wonderful new year!

Donna

Good news everyone, the hospital has identified a room for us! It's a lot bigger than we'd hoped for, we're delighted! As soon as I have some pictures I'll upload them so you can see. So excited that it's happening!

I'm going to update the fundraising page so that other people who don't know us can donate too. I'd really appreciate your help in sending it out to all your contacts. I'll send you a message once it's ready to be circulated.

Thanks again for all your support!

With love,

Donna & family xx

Dr Sann Sann was a remarkable doctor with a heart of Gold and a big smile which she shared with every one that comes her way. Never expecting any one to do any thing for her but she was ready to do every thing for any one who is in need. A play room at Yangon Children Hospital is something she identified which could help young children while awaiting their operation in the dreaded heat and uncertain outcome which they don't really understand. She thinks of holistic care for those children in need. Let us make her dream a reality with this project.

I was honoured to be a guest at Su and Michael's wedding in Yangon. Sann cared for me and invited me to her family house during my stay. I loved Sann. She will stay in my heart forever.

This is a fitting memorial to a very warm-hearted friend whom I was fortunate to know since medical school days.
