As I was going through a box of files in Burma, I came across some old photos from 2008. Fifteen years have passed, and so much has changed – in large part because of all the support of Metta In Action friends from around the world. It brought so much joy, to see the tangible results of all our – your – generosity!

So for your inspiration…how it started/how it’s going:

These changes and many more in other nunneries have come from 15 years of steady support – long may the work of these very special women prosper!
