BURMA HUMANITARIAN MISSION

Burma Humanitarian Mission

I want to make a difference for the people of Burma

by making a tax-deductible donation

to one of the projects of

Burma Humanitarian Mission:

 

BACKPACK MEDICS

Backpack medics are teams of 3-5 medics who live and travel among isolated villages and displaced persons in the conflict zones of eastern and northern Burma. Each team provides medical care and community health services to roughly 2,000 people and up to a dozen villages or camps. The medics assist the people in overcoming malaria, dysentery and pneumonia - illnesses with high mortality rates accentuated by their impoverished conditions. Where the medics operate, malaria, dysentery and child mortality rates have been reduced by at least 50%. Despite changes in Burma, the regime provides no health care to these isolated people - the urgency of backpack medics remains high. Your donation saves lives.


BURMA HUMANITARIAN MISSION GENERAL FUND

The General Fund supports the on-going operations of our organization as well as smaller projects that don't have the volunteer support in the US to do their own fundraising. Some of the projects we support include small schools in Burma and in refugee camps, and emergent needs for the Backpack Medics, such as boats for transportation of medicine. If there's ever a surplus, the funds will support our larger programs that have not received enough designated support. Your donation allows for focused support where it is most needed and for BHM to continue to operate.


GIRL DETERMINED

Girl Determined facilitates girls’ recognition of their personal and group potential. Girl Determined is sparking a movement of girls with leadership skills to advocate for their own rights and a future that does not re-create the risks they now face. Your donation changes a girl's life for the better.


MINMAHAW SCHOOL

Minmahaw School on the Thai/Burma border educates migrant and refugee youth from Burma, ages 17-23. Residential students have a rare opportunity to study at an 11-12th grade level, while also focusing on vocational education classes. Minmahaw's mission is to educate students so they can pursue further education, pass the GED, then possibly go on to a University in S.E. Asia. In addition, offering vocational courses for those who have little opportunity for further study increases their possibility of finding work. The main theme of the students lives' is to take their skills to work towards a Burma where freedom and democracy thrive again. Your donation makes the goal of higher education possible for a young man or woman from Burma.


MYANMAR MOBILE EDUCATION

MyME provides education via mobile classrooms to children in Myanmar (Burma) who've been compelled into indentured servitude at teashop restaurants where they're forced to work long hours every day in order to sustain their families. The mobile classrooms provide these children an opportunity to learn basic literacy, math and computer skills in a safe environment where they can gain self-confidence and develop critical thinking skills through innovative, interactive instruction. Your donation gives a child the hope of a better future.
