527 Euro donation to Myanmar Kid’s Aid

I will file a report of my activities here on the web site as soon as I am back in Germany.

The aid organisations Apotheker ohne Grenzen (Pharmacists without frontiers) and Landsaid requested some of my Burma pictures and of course I sent them a decent bunch of images to support their press relations and donations acquisition.
