The Web-site is still maintained by Levi from Kansas City.

  • She will sign an agreement with the Ministry of Relief (Myanmar government) to rebuild 1,000 houses for victims of Cyclone Nargis in many villages in the most affected areas. The building materials of each house will be about USD$600.00 (highly discounted wood from the Forestry Department of Myanmar).
  • Levi will also sign an MOU with the Ministry of Education (Myanmar government) to rebuild schools in the most affected areas. Average cost of building materials (pre-fabricated concrete) is USD$8,500.00.
