Being born in a typical Myanmar family whom are really enthusiastic to learn and share about Buddhist teachings and meditation, Snow started her Buddhist, cultural and historical studies since her childhood years. Her grandmother brought her to meditation centers and monasteries, her father surrounded by interesting books which can influence her life deeply. Another good point of her family is love of social services. Her long departed grandfather was one of the first officers from Social welfare department and her father stories of doing good things for others rooted in her childhood memories and encouraged to think for doing good deeds for others.
In order to carry out her ambitious humanitarian projects Snow founded the Compassionate Hands Foundation, a charitable, registered non-profit organization in 2008. Under Snow’s direction 10% of net profits of Compassionate Travels Myanmar is dedicated to the Compassionate Hands foundation to support a wide variety of charitable projects ranging from emergency relief support after natural disasters like cyclone, earthquake, flood and drought, providing medical care to building schools. Starting from 2016 April until now, we are able to support to feed 300- 1000 hospitalized and their attending family members every week at Yangon General Hospital.
