A 48-year-old man continued his over 1,000-mile journey walking in honour of COVID-19 front-liners, including medical workers and volunteers, as he left Meiktila Township in central Myanmar yesterday morning.
U Kyaw Kyaw Win (a) Bo Sanay is the residence of Phaungtaw village in PyinOoLwin Township, and he will walk the round trip between PyinOoLwin and Yangon. He also walked over 1,000 miles for the first walk of honour in 2017 on the theme of Myanmar’s victory in 29th Southeast Asian Games.
He began his second long-journey walk from PyinOoLwin on 30 December. He said, “It will take about 50 days for the 1,000 mile-journey in the round trip under fine weather condition. He also expressed his appreciation for the assistance of locals on his journey.
“I will share the donations which I received on the way to the COVID-19 control measures,” he added. —Chan Thar (Meiktila) (Translated by Aung Khin)
