Reuniting the displaced children of Myanmar
As the weather becomes cooler in Hong Kong, the season of hot pots and poon choi (big bowl feast) has arrived which are all hallmarks of family gatherings for Chinese families leading up to Chinese New Year.
As you gather with your families to celebrate the coming of a new year, we want to invite you to remember and consider contributing a portion of lai see/red packet money to help Viva reunite displaced children affected by the military rule in Myanmar with their families and their ethnic groups.
Many as young as 14 are kidnapped and forced to become child soldiers for the military and when the military disbanded in 2011, many are left to survive on the streets of Yangon.
Your gift will go to support the work of Viva’s partner network in Myanmar, Children’s Development Family Network, which comprises 20 Christian NGOs and children’s projects in Yangon, as it cares for displaced children, and reunites them with their families and communities.
