A Rangoon, Florent avait organisé une collecte de vêtements auprès des famille de ses étudiants à Rangoon.
Voici quelques extraits du récit de Florent:
On Friday, May 11th I packed my car with a lot of bags and boxes and left Yangon with a friend early in the morning.
In Tayarchaung people are not lucky. People don’t have enough water to drink and to wash and as a result all the kids have scabies. This year we therefore decided to deepen the water pond. We have also built a small bridge to help the people cross a stream that runs between the village and the reservoir.
Life is hard in Tayarchaung. Climate too. The day we arrived it was unbearably hot and the sunset marked a welcomed relief.But the next day dark clouds gathered and a few minutes later water was pouring down and the wind blowing everything away!
So one of the needs I had assessed during one of my previous trips was the lack of clothes. Some people have one longyi and one tee-shirt. There are 70+ families in Thayarchaung, so with my friend Thibaut we divided all your gifts in 70 small packs as you can see on pics.
and one lady got the top price with a rucksack:
Some kids got the cool looking sunglasses and a bunch of tee-shirts:
De toute façon, les villageois étaient très contents d’avoir reçu les vêtements et les chaussures! C’était un bon moment partagé!
