Dear Friends of The Akha Heritage Foundation:

>From our location in Maesai, Chiangrai, Northern Thailand on the Burmese
border we continue our efforts on behalf of the Akha People to provide
first aid care to villages, preserve the language and encourage the
development of literature, preserve and encourage the culture, and educate
those working with the Akha to do so in ways that also encourage the

At this time we are preparing for our summer school for Akha children which
starts Feb 1.

We have the following urgent needs:

Priority 1

1. Computer (ours melted down)
    Replacement cost $2,000

2. Phone line istallation $300

3. Payment on School Building/Help Center for balance of year (ending
July 11) $3,000

Priority 2

4. Printing press payoff for literacy program $2400 of original $3000

5. Ambulance 4x4 for Northern Thailand and Burma First Aid delivery, $24,000

We are particularlly crippled without computer and phone line. Computer
time can be borrowed for e-mails but does not allow us to do much of the
research and composition we need to do to move this work forward via
internet time.

If you can come to our aid at this time please be so kind as to contact me
at akha@loxinfo.co.th
