Keep the Rain out of Burma Refugee Recovery Centre

A microproject by DARE Network (Drug and Alcohol Recovery and Education Network)


Donors responded with great kindness and their pocket books when the floods occurred last year in the Burmese Refugee camps. (see our main project). We have been able to recover alot. But there are still details that are unfinished, that would help our teams continue their work to treat people in the camp, who want to recover from substance abuse addiction. This project will finish building the roof in part of our treatment centre in Mae La Camp, home to nearly 80,000 refugees.

After the flooding and extreme in the camps last year, DARE was able to rebuild most of our recovery centres. However, like many disaster relief responses, after the emergency is over it is thought that all the needs have been met. Mae La Camp is home to 80,000 Burmese refugees who have lost everything. Addiction is a natural reponse to the pain of these losses. This microproject will finish rebuilding our DARE Centre Roof in Mae La Refugee camp.


Half the building is finished. Please see the photos. The other half will get a new floor and a tin roof. This project is to help us build a strong Tin Roof, in the larger part of our DARE Centre, where we treat our clients, train our workers and hold workshops for our Youth teams.

Long-Term Impact

As DARE continues to support the prevention and recovery needs, the communities are owning their own programs. Ensuring they continue to have a place to practice what they have learned and share their skills with others is essential. All natural disasters and weather set people back, but the knowledge and skills remain. DARE Network programs operate on every level at grassroots. These roots are deep and can overcome the physical setback with a little help from you one DARE Centre at a time.
