Poverty Alleviation Projects

2006 Projects

March 2006

The following is a list of items purchased and delivered in support of 230 orphan and unaccompanied children living at Loi Tai Leng IDP village on the Thailand/Shan State, Burma border. Funds were drawn from a generous donation of $2,910 from the $10 Dollar Club ( www.tendollarclub.com ) and a $1,000 donation from a private individual.

Money was spent carefully with most items purchased at bulk discount stores and includes large size containers. The majority of items were delivered at the end of August of 2006. Delivery of the items was supervised by the top Shan commander with his personal guarantee that all the items are specifically earmarked for the children.

The rice shipment was particularly important because of food shortages brought on by the rainy season and restricted access and transportation. The rice was transferred to 4x4 pick-up trucks to get it up to the camp. A large quantity of spices was also provided to help ‘spice up’ the meals for the children.
