Unfortunately nobody could travel to Myanmar this year, due to work commitments and travel restrictions due to residency applications in the US. However, Christmas presents in form of financial aid was still sent and distributed. David and Grace took the family into town for a meal at a restaurant, sponsored by us, after an afternoon of shopping for clothes and trinkets, again with funds provided by us.
The Love Villas family has grown by 11 children, and the empty house #5 has new house parents. The building fund is used to plant cashew trees and to build a new house for the farmer family at the bottom of the rubber plantation.
