Journal Gazette

The Burmese community has organized a memorial service today to remember Kyaw Kyaw, who died three years ago.

The gathering for family, friends and other supporters will be from 3 to 5 p.m. at St. Henry's Catholic Church, 2929 E. Paulding Road.

Kyaw Kyaw, pronounced “Jaw Jaw,” collapsed and died at work Feb. 19, 2016. Since then, some local Burmese refugees have rallied to request better working conditions from various employers.

The public is welcome to attend the service.
