COVID-19: New hope for Thandar
Nine-year-old Thandar lives in Malamyaing, in the state of Mom and resides with her older sister and parents in a small 10-square feet room. “Before COVID-19 buying medicine for my sick mother was not a problem,” said Thandar. Her father works as a trishaw driver, bringing very little income but was still able to provide medicine to her mother who is suffering from a chronic illness. She added that her father could pay the house rent before.
