Saw Jim Bard
|Saw Jim Bard from Pu Saw Bu Child Care Center|
His regular donor is Janelle [last name withheld]. He grew up in Pu Saw Bu child care center. I talked to him when I was in Yangon. He is now a professional soccer player of the second team of the Irrawaddy football club. He is 18 years old and a striker. I introduced myself to him as one of the members of Friends of Burma (FOB). He knows FOB well. I told him that I wanted to let his donor know something about him and wanted his pictures. He sent his photos to me via his cellphone immediately. I don't know how much he got paid as a professional soccer player for a month, but I know whenever he plays a match, he gets more than one lakh (about $100). He is in touch with Pu Saw Bu child care center. To become a soccer star is one of the popular dreams among the youngsters in Myanmar. I told him to try hard to become a first class team player. He is still young and has a great chance to become a star. This is one of the fruits of FOB's mission.
