Jochen cycles 3000 KILOMETERS THROUGH ASIA
to save street children from Yangoons slums
Adventurer and tourist Jochen Meissner kicked off his 3000-kilometer challenge on August 25, 2019 in Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city. In cooperation with SONNE-International, the adventurer rides across Asia to raise money for street children. The tour takes him and his guide Michael through four countries. The first four days the biker still drove through Myanmar. After ten days, the Thai capital Bangkok was reached. Thereafter, stops in Malaysia are planned, z. In George Town on the island of Penang and in Kuala Lumpur. On September 21, Meissner already wants to arrive in Singapore.
Jochen Meissner is a longtime supporter of the Austrian NGO and hopes to raise 15,000 euros with his action. With this sum, forty street children can be accommodated at the new Street Children Center in Yangon for one year. There, the children receive health care, two meals a day, school clothes, lessons and materials with the aim of integrating them into the public school system after one year. The new SONNE-Förderzentrum, which will be opened in the autumn of 2019, is now looking for new education sponsors for 80 childcare places! To help disadvantaged children have a better future!
