July 2014, nine SUNSHINE ACTION volunteers went to Mae Sot, Thailand donating over 75 tones of rice, dry food, bricks, cements, construction materials, basic need materials, stationery and sponsoring 3 life-saving surgeries for the heart disease patients, including the following organizations:

- Mao Tao Clinic

- BCMF Burmese Children Medical Fund

- Eyes to Burma

- KKB Kwe Kha Baung Migrant School 


Mae Sot 美索,位於泰國西北面,離清邁車程約7小時,是一個住了120,000人口的城鎮,邊界與緬甸接壤,估計現時大約有60-70%的人口是來自緬甸的難民。

由於難民沒有泰國戶籍,若他們使用泰國政府開設的醫院,需要仍需付很高的醫療費用,幸好當地的慈善團體已提供全面、低廉、甚至免費的醫療服務。但對於一些嚴重的病例,例如身體嚴重創傷,並需要轉介到清邁醫院,由於需付額外的醫療及運送病人的費用 (來回約7,500泰珠,約港幣$2,000元正),很視乎外間有沒有善心人願意承擔支出。

MAO TAO CLINIC, founded by Dr. Cynthia Maung, herself a displaced person forced to flee her homeland in 1988, has worked tirelessly for over 20 years, providing critical healthcare to the people of Burma. The Clinic’s facilities and activities continue to grow. Currently, between 400 -500 people on average come to the clinic each day, and there is a staff of about 700 providing comprehensive health services and child protection services. Total caseload exceeds 115,000 cases annually with a client number of over 75,000 per year

Mae Sot is located in the northwest of Thailand on the border with Myanmar, about 700km from Chiang Mai (Thailand). Among the population of 120,000, around 60-70% are Burmese refugees.

Life of refugees
Having escaped Burma several decades ago, these refugees are still not entitled to Thai nationality and so cannot enjoy the same rights, such as the statutory-minimum day wage. Some turn to illegal work in textile and food factories in return for only HK$16 per day, or a third of what their Thai counterparts earn. For others with no skills, the only place they can live is on a trash mountain where they eke out a meagre living by picking up and selling recyclable items. They live in extremely harsh conditions and schooling for their children is impossible.

Local education
Without Thai residency, they cannot study in the local schools, but luckily some NGOs operate full-time educational facilities for these refugee children, from primary through secondary. In recent years, some such institutions have faced financial crisis because of the global economic downturn which severely affected overseas donations. Lacking their only source of income, some teachers went unpaid for many months but they were willing to continue in order to tide over this crisis.

 Kwe Ka Buang school, the students in this school is largely comprised of one of the ethnic minority group-Karen, so it's a rare migrant school. We’ll see the living & education condition, plus granting materials that are needed. In the past, they are rural villagers who are suffering abuses such as forced labor, systematic destruction of villagers and crops, forced relocations, extortion, looting, arbitrary detention, torture, sexual assault and summary executions.

Students dormitory

Few universities in Burma accept graduates from the high schools in Mae Sot and soon none of these students will be able to continue their tertiary education in Thailand.

Medical system

Mae Sot seems to be a shadow of Burma. Refugees have their own lifestyle, education and medical system, with no help from the Thai government. Some NGOs provide comprehensive, low-cost or free medical services to tackle basic sickness, but if patients are severely hurt or suffer a serious illness, they must be transferred to Chiang Mai Hospital under the Thai government’s operation, but this happens only on the condition that donors can sponsor the patient’s transfer (round trip 7,500 baht or HK$2,000) and additional medical expenses... such as the heart surgeries sponsored by SUNSHINE ACTION.

The Karen are a group of Indo-Chinese tribes living principally in Burma in the Indo-Chinese peninsula. The greater part of this territory they occupy in connection with the other peoples of the country, namely, the Burmese, Shan, Siamese, and Chin. The only exclusively Karen country is the hilly region of the Toungoo district and the Karenni subdivision.

 Works of Sunshine Action in Mae Sot

-  Donate food to 100 families living on trash mountains, especially milk powder and beverages for malnourished children. We also provide headlamps, torches, cells and boots to protect them when working on rubbish mountains at night, plus some personal cleaning products.

-  Subsidise salaries for teachers who have been unpaid for at least 8 months to guarantee these schools continue operating.


Future plans (Depends on future donation)

-          Purchase 100 solar lamps for families on trash mountain.

-          Monthly food donation to these families through providing basic food, e.g rice and milk power

-          Subsidize severely sick patients go to Chiang Mai Hospital with amount ceiling at HK$30,000 per patient. One-off treatment only.

Thailand is the second country where Sunshine Action started the full year program, by arranging volunteering visits by the young students to the elderly and giving fruit tree saplings to poor families to get more food by themselves or sell to market



This program is set with cooperation with the St. Michael Archangel Catholic Church.

Each team will have 4 students and they will provide monthly visits to the selected cases of poor elderly. Every time, they will bring a package of food and other basic need items.

  • An area of a rainforest the size of a football field is being destroyed each second.

Tropical forests cover 23% of the Earth's land surface, but they are disappearing at a rate of 4.6 millions hectares a year. Asia leads loses with 2.2 millions hectares a year, Latin America & the Caribbean together lose 1.9 millions and Africa loses 470'000 hectares of rain forest every year.

  • More than 5'000 things are made from trees such as houses, furniture, pencils, utensils, fences, books, newspapers, movie tickets even clothing & toothpaste.

  • Three-quarters of the world's people rely on wood as their main source of energy.


  • Destruction of forests creates numerous environmental catastrophes, including altering local rainfall patterns, accelerating soil erosion, causing the flooding of rivers, and threatening millions of species of plants, animals and insects with extinction.



A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 lbs./year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings.
