While living in Phuket, Thailand for over 10 years, my parents and I came to know a family of four from Myanmar: Nu, Yang, Nong Sa and Luca. We have so much love for them and they have become a big part of our family.
They are now living in Mawlamyine, Myanmar. We've been supporting Nong Sa's education by sending money to them on a monthly basis for over 10 years. Nong Sa has now finished high school and Luca is in elementary school. We want to continue to support Nong Sa and Luca's education so they can complete university as well.
We are hoping to raise 1,000,000 Thai Baht which should help to cover the costs of school and university tuition, school supplies, uniforms, and transportation.
Any amount of support would be much appreciated, even just a few hundred Thai Baht would go a long way. This fundraiser will help us to continue to support Luca and Nong Sa's education for the coming years.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story.

In September of this year, mum, dad and I traveled to Myanmar for the first time to visit Nu, Luca, Nong Sa and meet their extended family. It was an amazing trip! We spent most of our time in Mawlamyine, Nu’s hometown, and the island where Nu grew up. Mawlamyine
