With the generous donations from you, we were able to deliver 130 bags of rice, 1000 soap (Lifebuay 110g) pieces, 250 vises of dried fish, 400 liters of cooking oil, and 308 blanket to many families in Shinletwa & Mee Zar, Paletwa, Chin State, Myanmar who are directly affected by the continuing conflict in Burma.
The aid delivery was received with a heartfelt welcome from the local communities and elected officials alike while also attracting the media coverage from local and national media outlets.
However, the situation in Myanmar (Burma) is now quickly escalating into brutality and a humanitarian crisis—following the military of Myanmar staged a coup d’état on Feb 1. The people are in dire need of your help. Your donation will go directly to those who have been affected by conflict and will support them with their emergency medical care, food, shelter, and other basic needs as well as their longer-term livelihood and community resiliency.
Hundreds of thousands of Burmese citizens who have taken peacefully to the streets to protest the coup have been responded with increasingly inhumane and brutal displays of force by the security force, engaging in murder, persecution, and imprisonment of innocent people who simply are asking for their freedom. Credible reports indicate over 500 innocent people have died since the Feb 1 coup.
The daily anti-regime protest, the civil disobedience movement (CDM), and violent crackdowns on the peaceful protesters are crippling the country’s economy and exacerbating the conditions of millions of the poor even more vulnerable. They are in dire need of your help. Your donation will go directly to those who have been affected by conflict and will support them with their emergency medical care, food, shelter and other basic needs.
