Summary

As you are all likely aware, February 1, 2021 the Military Junta of Myanmar staged a Coup ousting the newly re-elected government of the National League for Democracy and imprisoning its leaders.What happened next surprised the Coup makers. The people of Myanmar rose up. The Coup makers have ignored all calls for a cessation of the violence from the UN and the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN). They continue to do the only thing they know how to do. Kill, torture and rape.

Challenge

At DARE Network, we are able to continue our addiction work in the Refugee Camps on the Thai side of the border. Our work inside Karen State continues amid a brutal war with our brave Addition Workers training new workers and treating clients at our DARE Centre. Every day is dangerous in Burma/Myanmar but our people are up to the challenge. They need as much support as they can get.

Solution

DARE Network remains on the ground to help people find ways to manage their lives in the face of all these difficulties, without abusing drugs and alcohol and by preventing young people from starting. It is daunting as more and more people succumb to their feelings of desperation and hopelessness. Because DARE Network Addiction staff are also refugees extensively trained to help their communities, they only need enough resources to continue their effective and courageous work.

Long-Term Impact

The greatest effect at this time is the fact that DARE Network is embedded in the refugee communities. When and if, they can return to their homeland, we will go with them, offering our workers job security and suffering addicts relief. We need to bridge the gap between the rock and the hard place. We appreciate your continued support to the well-being of the displaced ethnic people in camps, on the Thai/Burma Border. It is now more important than ever. Thank you so much for your help.
