Kids being kids
Greetings from the Burmese Refugee camps on the Thai/Burma Border. This season is a special time for the refugees. The cool season is here and the conditions are right for special events. Karen New Year corresponds with the calendar New Year and many people in the camps celebrate their cultures and religions, just like all over the world.
For the Burmese Refugees it is bitter-sweet as many families have suffered losses of their loved ones inside Burma. So many families have been unable to leave the camps for decades and so many children have known nothing but a refugee camp.
This season please consider partnering with GlobalGiving to support these refugees through DARE Network’s work to prevent and treat addiction in the camps.
We have many projects to choose from and they can be found at this link.
If you want to make your donation really count, consider a recurring donation, which GlobalGiving is matching. If we receive 10 recurring donations on one project, before the bonus money of $25,000 runs out, we will receive an extra $500.
Our Burmese Refugee Youth Prevent Addiction and Violence Project already has 3 recurring donations made in the last week. Help us get to 10. Go to this link and us the recurring donation tab.
Of course, if you prefer to make a one time donation to any of our programs, we would be very thankful indeed.
If you find you can help out, make sure you get your donation in soon to take advantage of the bonus funds while they last.
Happy Holidays from all of us at DARE Network
In treatment...so young.
