Building Schools for 20 Years
We built our first school in Shwe Kyet Yet village, Belmond Road to Mandalay’s port, when our ship launched 20 years ago. Since then, our dedicated staff and generous guests have helped us build 21 further schools at various points along our cruise routes. Currently around 3000 students attend our schools.
Our Free Clinic Expands
Under the leadership of our ship’s on board physician, Dr Hla Tun, Belmond Road to Mandalay opened a free clinic in Bagan in 2011. An extra building was added in February 2014. So far we have treated over 40,000 patients, many of whom are extremely poor and have travelled from up to 200km away. Patients are offered a free lunch when they attend. The clinic gives reading glasses to the elderly: we invite guests to bring any unwanted glasses for distribution.
