I am Rotarian Maliwan Kaew-Amphai, the new Project Champion for the Chiang Mai International Rotary Club Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) Project.  For now all of our effort is at the BCMF B.K.Kee Patient House in Chiang Mai.  All of the patients have serious medical situations like heart disease, cancer or a birth defect. Our purpose is to bring the patients and their family love and respect and make their lives more comfortable. You may email  bcmfproject@cmirotary.org for any question or suggestion.

We visit the house most Sundays, usually meeting at pump Shell (the Shell petrol station) on Huay Kaew Road at 11:00 a.m.  Sometimes, the time may vary, even the day.  CMIRC members and future members are invited to attend.  We try to have about four people go each time.  All members of CMIRC have already signed the Child Protection Policy.  Visitors are required to sign the same document.  It is available at https://cmirotary.org/page/cmir-policy and I will have copies available. 

With each visit, we do an activity.  In July, the patients and family members finished a project to make pencil bags to go to poor schools in Burma.   We made sandwiches one Sunday and had a drawing activity the next.  Turns out many of the Burmese patients and families had never made sandwiches before and liked them very much.  We may have a plan to make banana bread soon.

In the future there is a plan to involve Interact Club members in a painting project.
