In January 2017 we officially opened our children’s village in the town of Taungii, offering a loving family for eight children who have been rescued from extreme poverty.
Aung's family of six were affectionate but exceedingly poor, struggling to make ends meet. Aung’s father, in desperation to provide for his children, trafficked drugs to India but was caught at the border and sentenced to seven years in prison.
Naomi was a very special surprise. At just nine days old she was left outside the Stand by Me Sophia Academy campus in Tamu, Burma. This tough start was turned around when we found her. Today is the 1st birthday!
Ciang, Headteacher of the Stand by Me Lois School in Kalaymyo, was going about her morning chores at her home when, at around 8am, she had a visitor appear with three small children.
Stand by... almost there...
