ဟန္စုယဥ္

ေအာက္ကစာကို အီးေမးလ္နဲ့ရထားလို႔ တင္ေပးတာပါ။ အဂၤလိပ္လိုဆိုေတာ့ ဘိုလိုဖတ္ၾကေပါ့ေနာ..။
အီးေမးလ္နဲ့လက္ခံရထားတဲ့ အေဖေရးတာေရာ သမီးငယ္ေတြေရးတာပါ တင္ေပးလိုက္ပါတယ္။သား၊သမီးေတြက ယူအက္စ္မွာေမြးၾကတာျဖစ္ေပမဲ့ ျမန္မာကဗ်ာကိုေတာင္ ျပီးခဲ့တဲ့ႏွစ္က အယ္လ္ေအလာတံုး အလြတ္ရြတ္ျပသြားႏိုင္ၾကတာပါ။အခုေလာက္ဆို ပါဌိလိုမ်ားဖတ္ေနၾကျပီလားေတာ့မသိ…။

အခုလည္း ၁၃ႏွစ္သမီးက ၁၃မိုင္ေျပးျပမယ္ ဆိုပါတယ္။ အဲ..မႏွစ္ကလည္း ေျပးတာပါပဲ။ မႏၱေလးေဂဇကထဲေတာင္ သတင္းထည့္ေပးဖူးပါတယ္။ ဓါတ္ပံုက သမီးငယ္ဟန္စုယဥ္ရဲ့ မႏွစ္ကပံုပါ။

ဆိုေတာ့…က်ဳပ္ေတာ့ အသက္ၾကီးမွ ၁၃မိုင္လည္း မေျပးႏိုင္ေတာ့ပါဘူး။ အဲဒီလိုနဲ့ ရံပံုေငြလည္း မရွာႏိုင္ပါဘူး။ သူမ်ားေတြလွဴဖို႔ပဲ (မီဒီယာလုပ္ေနတဲ့သူျဖစ္တာမို )့တိုက္တြန္းရင္း ရြာေဆာ္ၾကီးလုပ္လိုက္ရပါတယ္။

ကဲ..ေျပးမလား..လွဴမလား…

Dear Friends,

This July, I will run the San Francisco Half Marathon – 13.1 miles through a wonderful city.  I will join more than 20,000 runners on July 25th in this endeavor.

As you would expect, completing such an endeavor is a phenomenal undertaking.  I am fortunate to have the good health and support to pursue it.  It will be a milestone and memorable event for me personally.

At the same time, I realize that this is an opportunity to translate this event into an opportunity to help others.  I have joined a team called “Run for Burma.”  This team is dedicated to raise awareness and funds for a wonderful non-profit — Burma Humanitarian Mission (www.burmamission.org) and for the Burmese American Democratic Alliance (http://www.badasf.org/).

Collectively, we will raise money to fund medical training and supplies for backpack medics who travel through the jungles of eastern Burma, treating ethnic groups oppressed by the Burmese junta.  As one example of the appalling conditions in this part of Burma, one in five children dies before their fifth birthday while 1 in 12 mothers dies as a result of childbirth.  Malaria, an illness that is curable, is the leading cause of death.

Burma Humanitarian Mission makes a difference.  Each $1 donated will buy 40 doses of medicine.  $5 will cure a pregnant woman of malaria – saving 2 lives.  This year Burma Humanitarian Mission will train two-thirds of all new medics and providing over 400,000 doses of medicine.

With BADA, we will help to champion the cause of democracy for all the peoples of Burma.  BADA’s actions to generate the political support and preserve all elements of Burmese culture translates into direct diplomatic and economic pressure on the repressive junta regime.

Will you considering supporting me by sponsoring me $1, $2, $3, $4 or $5 for each mile I run on July 25th?  Or, would you like to make straight dollar commitment?  Your support is tax deductible and Burma Humanitarian Mission will provide you the necessary paperwork.

If you can support me, you can donate one of three ways:

1. On-line at my personal webpage: https://secure2.merchantcart.net/runsfm//mywebpage.cfm?pid=494546
2.  On-line at www.burmamission.org/donate.
3.  Mail a check to:

BHM
2134 37th St NW
Washington DC, 20007

Thank you for your kindness and support.  You will help me transform this exceptional event into a life-saving opportunity for Burmese children and their families far from the media spotlight.  After the race, I will let you know how it went.  No matter what you choose to do, I appreciate your time.  Keep me in your thoughts on July 25th when I join thousands of others on the roads through the city by the bay!

Thank you.

Han Suu Yin
