The Branch Foundation would like to say a big 'Thank You' to all those who have donated to this project so far!
Fortunately no emergency situations have occurred in the communities we work with since our last report. This means that after helping to rebuild the boarding house/orphanage at the Shan Refugee Camp, that we currently have US$ 866 left in the Emergency Relief Fund.
Although, the communities have been fortunate enough to not need emergency assistance since our last report, this does negate the importance of this vital fund to quickly respond to emergency situations. This week, two of our staff are visiting the Shan Refugee Camp to discuss possible ways in which we can further implement income generation opportunities for the community. This will mean that they can start building their own emergency relief fund so that they are self-empowered and free from the reliance of outside aid. However, until that point is reached, the community is extremely thankful for your part in putting their mind at rest and creating more stability in their lives.
We still have yet to reach our target funding goal, please share this project with your friends and family to enable us to do so and we will be sure to keep you updated as and when we use funds from this Emergency Relief Fund.
Once again, we'd like to express our sincere gratitude for your generous support.
