Free Funeral Services Society Yangon (F.F.S.S)
"Only the noble hearted can accomplish the most unpleasant but praiseworthy tasks”(Sayardaw U Take Kha - Taung Sa Lin Monastery)
The Free Funeral Service Society (Yangon) (F.F.S.S. (Yangon)) has been offering free funeral services since January 1, 2001, so that much of the sorrows and burdens of the bereaved family members are alleviated. More than 80’000 funeral services have been rendered free of charge since.
With the funds contributed by the exceedingly generous donors, the society has provided free funeral services which ease the sorrows, miseries, grieves and hardships of the bereaved families to a certain extent.
The demands for our funeral services are on the rise as the funeral proceeding costs are becoming higher and higher. In any hard and tight circumstances, the central committee, members and staffs are contributing their services to the community enthusiastically. While trying to overcome the prevailing prejudices, we, the committee, members and staffs of F.F.S.S (Yangon), embracing the motto “only the noble hearted can accomplish the most unpleasant but praiseworthy tasks”, are altruistically giving their commitments in helping at the funeral services. Trying to understand and lessen the worries and sufferings of the unfortunates, we are providing our services with kindness, sympathy, selflessness and willingness.
Regardless of social status, nationality, and religion, the following services are offered free of charge to anyone on request;
1. Transporting the dead body to respective cemetery.
2. Cremation on the day requested by the bereaved family members.
3. Offering the expenses in keeping the dead body at the mortuary for up to two days
4. Providing the use of glass or aluminum coffins and gilded karawait phaung taw (for the Revered Monks/Sangas) till the cremation is completed.
These services are operated with the Society’s own hearses. All the services mentioned above are being provided free of charge. We cordially invite you to participate with us in accomplishing these meaningful and effective, worthy meritorious deeds. Your kindness and generous contributions will be warmly welcomed because this organization has been functioning with much success solely on the donations raised locally and abroad.
