Too Many Holes in our Recovery Centre Floor

$25 $1,400
Raised Remaining


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 floor in part of our treatment centre in Mae La Camp, home to nearly 80,000 refugees.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

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 in Mae La Refugee camp.

How will this project solve this problem?

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 the floors in the larger part of our DARE Centre where we treat our clients, train our workers and hold workshops for our Youth teams.

Potential 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.

The Thai floods of 2011 started in the north of Thailand, where DARE Network works in 5 Burmese Refugee camps on the Thai/Burma Border. During this rainy season our DARE Centre buildings were badly damaged. We have already rebuilt 1 Centre but need your help with 4 more. DARE (Drug and Alcohol Recovery and Education) Network provides highly successful community-based prevention education and non-medical culturally appropriate addiction treatment to the communities of 150,000 Burmese Refugees. project reportread updates from the field
