Let’s fill a shipping container!

Ever since we started back in February 2018, M2M has received many tangible donations such as kids clothes, stationery, haberdashery and laptops.

Normally we ask our missionary friends to carry light tangible goods with them on their flight to Myanmar. As most of you are aware, there are limits to how much one can carry on an airplane.

Now that the Yangon campus is home to 135 kids and 7 staff members, the need for clothes and stationery has grown immensely. Not only has there been an increase in demand for these essentials but also, there has been a sharp increase in the weight and volume of these essential items.

There are some other items on the list that are too bulky and too heavy for one to check-in. This is why we have decided to send a 20-foot shipping container to Yangon.

Below is the shipping schedule so please save these important dates.

Loading the container

We have made arrangements for loading the shipping container.

An empty container will be delivered to a venue in East Brisbane in late January and we will have approximately 10 days to fill the container before the truck comes back to collect the container.

We will reveal the exact location in January 2020.

 

List of wanted items

Where to store the items before the container becomes available?

At this stage, we do not have a temporary storage space for collecting items before the container becomes available for loading.

Two directors on the board have one extra guest bedroom in their homes which they will use as a temporary storage space until the container is delivered to East Brisbane. Unless you have a spare garage or a shed, you can do the same as well.

 

How can you help?

If you have a spare garage or shed which you rarely use and you don't mind having some bulky items for a short time, please write to info@mission2myanmar.org

You can send the list of wanted items to your family, friends and co-workers. Don't be shy. You will never know unless you ask.

The more people who knows about this project, the more likely we will fill the shipping container before the ship leaves Port Brisbane in February!
