Project financed this year by the charity shop : a preschool for Ban Navay (Laos)

Ban Navay is a remote and poor village in the province of Vientiane located 100 km north of the capital. For many years, villagers have been asking for a preschool to be built, which would enable them to entrust their young children with a suitable carer and start their education earlier.

Thanks to your donations and purchase in our charity shop, we are currently building 3 classrooms to open a preschool for the children of Ban Navay.


Many thanks for our greatest week!

Last week we have had our best week in terms of sales.

We want to thank all of our donors and customers for contributing to the well-being of Children of the Mekong and for making all our projects achievable.

A special thank to all our gift-aid donors!

Mg John Naug Naug is a 11-year-old Burmese child.
He comes from a large family with six elder sisters and one elder brother. His parents are too old and don’t take care of him. The father is a drug addict. One of the sisters is taking care of John but she doesn’t have much money. He wears his big brother’s clothes. The family is dispersed.
Help him build a future beyond poverty and full of hope !

Drug is a common problem in poor families in Myanmar and it is very difficult to get out of it, it's a vicious circle which has been passed on through generations. You can stop it now!
