Amount raised: EURO 970

After spending many hours at COPE Visitor Centre in July 2016 during a 3-week trip to Laos, Luke and Kai Bitschnau, respectively 12 and 10 years old, decided to put their dual citizenship to good use by selling Australian delicacies at two local Christmas markets in Austria. Because “Christmas is about giving” they made and sold 70 kilos of potato twisters (fried potato on a stick) and chocolate muffins, raising an amazing 970 euros worth of profit.

Amount raised: USD $2,700

In May 2013, the Singapore Embassy visited the Centre for Medical Rehabilitation and COPE centre. They were impressed by what our centre is trying to achieve and during the Embassy’s National Day reception in August 2013, they encouraged their invited guests to donate to COPE instead of sending flowers to the Embassy. Many of their guests responded positively and USD2,700 was raised through their generous donations. The photograph shows the handover ceremony at the Embassy where the Ambassador Ms Kang Siew Kheng handed the cheque to Ms Bounlanh Phayboun, CEO of COPE

Madame Marguerite Garnier from France celebrated her 95th birthday last year and instead of presents asked her children, grand children, great grand children, nieces and nephews to donate money to COPE. 2035 EUR (2700 USD) was collected and transferred to COPE in January. The photo from the celebration shows Madame Garnier surrounded by her 8 children, 27 grand children and 37 great grand children. 34 nieces and nephews are missing from the photo. Thank you so much to Madame Garnier and your generous family, people like you are vital for ensuring the necessary support for people with disabilities in Laos.

PAST DONORS

Dawnie Ng & Pure Yoga

Dawnie Ng & Pure Yoga

Amount Raised: HKD 6,854 (Nearly USD$900).

Hong Kong resident Dawnie Ng visited Laos in the summer of 2015 and discovered that Laos is the most-bombed country per capita in history and that many parts of the country are still suffering from the effects of unexploded ordnance (UXO) contamination. After returning to Hong Kong, Dawnie convinced local business Pure Yoga to organise a yoga workshop at their centre in Hong Kong to raise money for both COPE and MAG Laos. The workshop was held on 16 January 2016, and donation boxes were put in all 7 centres of Pure Yoga for that week. The workshop was led by two awesome yoga teachers, Ms Shalon Wan and Mr Eswar Khuntia. Dawnie helped raise awareness of the situation in Laos and the work of COPE and MAG by preparing some slides to share with the workshop participants. Dawnie raised HKD 6,854 which has been split equally between COPE and MAG Laos.

Ann Curran, Ireland

Ann Curran, Ireland

Amount raised: USD $4,000

Ann visited COPE in February 2011 and was very impressed by COPE’s work giving new limbs to victims of landmines (cluster bombs). The 4000 US dollars she brought back to COPE in December 2011 came from very generous friends and family in Ireland and is to be used to fit prostheses to children. Some of the money came from children in Galway. Ann’s niece and nephew Rachel (12) and Stephen (10) will brave the cold Atlantic on Christmas Day to do a sponsored swim. They hope to send more money to COPE. Meabh (6) gave money from her money box. Jack (11) who cannot walk and is a wheelchair user because he has cerebral palsy asked his parents to buy a leg for a child in Laos instead of being given a present for himself. They all wish COPE well in their excellent work.
Thank you very much Ann with family and friends and especially the children for your donations!

Thanks Gille Chorbacher and all the supporters at the birthday party!
