Ven. Dr. Ashin Nyanissara visited with Cardinal Michael Mitchai Kitbunchu (Archbishop of Thailand) and Father Pibul Visitnontachai (Director of the Thai Bishops' Catholic Office for Emergency Relief & Refugees) in Bangkok, Thailand to discuss cooperative efforts in the wake of Cyclone Nargis in Burma on 26 January, report said.
Situgu Sayadaw has received one million baht from Supreme Monk of Thailand right after Cyclone Nargis. Many Thai societies and Burmese societies live in Thailand also donated Sitagu Sayadaw's relief work and rebuilding schools and hospitals.
Many Burmese and international community and societies feel that donating Sayadaw is the best way to send their donations to the needy people in effected area. In order to avoid donating to the regime, Sayadaw is one of the few channels to do it.
