A letter from Say Hai to Campie children

Campie School Students,

How are you? I hope all of you are well and healthy with your family. How about your learning? I thank you done the great away and very well. As for us we try the best every time.

The first, I want to say you all thanks very much. When I went to you, you have a great welcome to me so, I’m very happy. I have known all of you are interesting Burma especially Aung San Su Kyi. So, I’m so proud myself for my society or country. And when I have being taught in your class, all of you are bright and clever because of your questions. And then I want to say you the fact that make me happier, is you are very interesting to our students. I have seen it when I have gone to high school. Our student also more clever than before in writing when they have relationship with you. So I know it is the result of our partner ship (or) friend ship between C.D.C and Campie School.

Finally, I want to say you Thank very much as much as you have support and help to our students. You try to learn and want to communicate to us so, I’m very happy to see you all interesting to us. I believe that we are going to get relationship better than now.

Thank very much, May God bless you all!

Best wishes,
Say Hai
C.D.C school

It's Dr Cynthia's birthday...

Today CDC celebrated Dr Cynthia's birthday in big style with many groups of staff and children dancing for her. Louise Laing has been rehearsing Karen dancing and singing for 2hrs per day. You can see the celebrations here. Look carefully and you can see Say Hei with a Christmas tree. Say Hei looks really hot. How strange to see a Christmas Tree in the hot Thai sun.

Suu Kyi thanks Thailand for helping Burmese

Aung San Suu Kyi has expressed her gratitude to Thais for helping the Burmese people.

"We would like you to know that we wish to be your good friend and good neighbor," she said in a phone interview with the Bangkok-based Thai-Asean News Network. She called on Thais to be kind to migrants and refugees from her country.

Thailand has been sheltering more than 100,000 Burmese refugees for over two decades, and about 2 million migrants from the country are currently working in Thailand. Recently, more Burmese people have fled to Thailand as government troops fight with armed ethnic groups along the border. Suu Kyi also addressed fellow citizens in Thailand and promised they would not be forgotten, and that she would do what she could to bring them back home as soon as possible.

And here is a lovely, lovely photo of Aung San Suu Kyi with her son Kim for the first time in 10 years. Beautiful picture of a precious moment.
