Dear Supporters,

As you are aware, since the military coup took place on the 1st February, the people of Myanmar have faced a horrific and violent crackdown on human rights. Over 900 civilians have been killed and thousands arrested. Over 230,000 are reported to be internally displaced and 35,000+ have sought refuge in other countries, with many being turned back at the borders. Daily life for those inside the country has become increasingly difficult with food shortages and a collapse of banking services.

Thankfully, Health & Hope’s staff are safe, but in hiding, with some having to flee the country. As a result of all that’s happened, the operational environment for our work has changed significantly and so we have had to make the difficult decision to put some of our previous work on hold.

The Freedom to Education Project (FEP) however, has been able to continue supporting students in countries such as India and China. Indeed, it has become more critical than ever with students from Myanmar losing all access to education services for the second year in a row following the Covid-19 pandemic.

To this end, we are expanding the FEP to provide support to an additional 20 students who passed their Grade 10 exams as part of our Education for All project. These students will be provided with full scholarships for accommodation, tuition and living expenses to enable them to study and received pastoral support overseas.

We are so grateful for your continued partnership which provides much-needed funds to impoverished students and families from Chin State.

Unfortunately, due to the security risk to our staff and those we work with, we are unable to publicly share further details about the students and where they will be studying, however we will ensure we keep you updated as and when we are able to.

Thank you again for your generous support.
