Our Marie has been on the job again for DanChurchAid: Prinsesse Marie delte dejlig varm suppe ud | BILLED-BLADET

Monday noon, she went to central Copenhagen to help putting focus on DanChurchAid's national fundraiser on Sunday 13th March.

The theme this year is: Share your time with the poorest women in the world.
Here she joined women from the socio-economic catering-business, Send More Spices, for twenty minutes, selling pumpkin-soup for the price of 25 DKK per bowl. The surplus being donated to poor women worldwide.
However, those who volunteered to go house-to-house collecting in a couple of weeks got their soup for free.

- As I understand it, the business Send More Soup, employ mainly immigrant women with no education and no or next to no workplace experience, who would otherwise never have a genuine chance of entering the job-market.

i think this is a good move on marie and the DRF at the moment, seeing the strict position that denmark has taken against immigrants into denmark.

I think that stance is pretty universal in all of Europe or about to be implemented.
Anyway, the DRF is hardly going against a stance that has a very wide support in the Parliament as well as the public.
So I don't think we should read anything political into this one.

A good idea to keep that low-key.

Not that I think our Marie was in any particular danger in Myanmar, but there are local separatists organizations who might be tempted to kidnap foreigners.

Great visit for Marie, she looked so much at ease on the visit.

what a great trip! i loved seeing the photos of marie in myanmar. firstly, because i would love to travel there. but secondly, because the pictures show an interested, relaxed marie soaking it all in. i love her pic sitting on the floor with that family looking at the young boy and the one sitting on the floor with the other ladies. i guess i liked the simplicity of it all, that it wasn't just marie the princess, but just marie. it all looked very normal and low key - no security on sight, fairly intimate environments and not a huge committee travelling with her either.

How odd that DanChurchAid chose Inle Lake to focus on poverty reduction. Together with Bagan, Inle Lake is THE tourist destination in Myanmar. Thanks to tourism and handcraft products (which again are bought en masse by tourists) the people at Inle Lake are far better off than those in many other parts of Myanmar. It's a bit like choosing the Red Sea area for poverty reduction in Egypt. But of course it's a very picturesque place and good for taking lovely pictures.

It's also odd that even after the visit the information given by the royal house is so very vague. I can understand why they kept it a secret although Inle Lake is a much safer place than e.g. the Rakhine State which CP Mary visited a few years ago - and that visit was announced beforehand. But why this vagueness regarding dates?

Myanmar was until quite recently a pretty closed country, certainly in regards to tourists.
And the tourist industry is a very important source of income and very much so for the locals - who may need help and guidance in regards how set it up and in regards to small investments.

We'll see when more info is released.

I travelled in Myanmar very often, even before the country opened up. And Inle Lake is for sure one of the two most prosperous places in Myanmar.

Well, I imagine there are poor people in that area as well.

We'll see. DanChurchAid usually publish something from these travels.
