We provide free soaps to under privileged who cannot afford them. Institutions we support include orphanages, old folks home, hospitals for the poor, and communities living below poverty. Myanmar is a Buddhist majority country and we recognize the role of the Sangha (Buddhist monks and nuns) in social education. The Sangha is dependent on lay people and devotees for their material needs. As a sign of respect to these teachers, the soaps are also presented as offerings to the Sangha.
Daily use of soap
can prevent the transmission of diseases and
illness including diarrhoea, common cold, E.
Coli, SARS, MRSA, and H1N1 (swine flu).
Dr Stephen Luby’s research have indicated that children who washed their hands and skin with plain soap had

Myanmar NGOS have promoted the importance of soap use. While this is generally understood, the underprivileged cannot afford it thereby exposing themselves to possible infections.
By offering the underprivileged soap all year round, we can prevent the transmission of diseases and illness so that they have a healthy body to learn skills and participate in training to create a better future for themselves and their families.
In the case of the elderly, a healthy body leads to a better quality of life.
Bleulight soapsTo prevent donated soaps from being sold, the soaps are produced as Bleulight soap and the wrapper has a text “donated soap not for sale” printed in Burmese.
Meanwhile, our local partners help to ensure that users who receive the soaps cannot afford them and would have lived without soaps.
