Supporting education and healthcare in Burma.
The Pandaw Charity was established following Cyclone Nargis in 2008 when the Pandaw ships, converted to floating hospitals, and their crews saved so many lives. Since then over twelve schools have been built and the UK-registered charity operate seven Pandaw Clinics in middle Burma which provide an average of 5,000 free treatments a month with a full time team of twenty medics, paramedics and pharmacists. This is entirely sponsored by donations from Pandaw passengers and a profit share from Pandaw River Expeditions.

"I have been engaged with Burma for thirty five years and Burma has given me much. The Pandaw Charity is a way to give something back to Burma. It is also a way by which our passengers can say thank you to Burma for so many enriching experiences." Paul Strachan, Founder of Pandaw Cruises

Education
We have raised money to build twelve schools either on remote river islands or in villages too distant from towns to send children to school there. On Thiri Island, which lies in the Irrawaddy south of Pagan, we have built three primary schools and one high school bringing a complete education to the island children.
Healthcare
We opened our first Pandaw Free Clinic at Gantgar Village in 2009. Almost immediately it was overrun with patients, many travelling long distances for treatment. We now operate seven clinics in the villages around Pagan and treat over 5,000 patients a month with a full time team of twenty, which includes of doctors, paramedics, pharmacists and support staff. In 2014 we opened a central clinic at Pagan with an X ray facility and other diagnostic equipment that doctors can refer patients to from the outlying clinics.

The Pandaw Charity is run by Pandaw employees on a pro bono basis. Since its inception the UK charity has filed ZERO administrative expenses on its annual return to the charity regulator. Donations go to the field, not to offices.
