HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE

 

All of us at DARE Network wish you the best in 2020, the start of a new decade.  We hope you and your families have love, security and prosper.

 

Firstly, we want to thank you for your most kind and compassionate giving over the last year and during our Year-End Campaign.  The difference you make to our work is phenomenal and every donation we receive goes right to our beneficiaries.

 

You may not know that 2020 is DARE Network’s 20thanniversary working with the displaced people from Burma.  20 years is a long time and we have accomplished a lot on a shoestring.  The reason we are still here is the never-ending situation of oppression and violence perpetrated on our people and the pain that they suffer as a consequence.  The enormous supply of drugs plied by the drug lords of Burma and their protectors the Burmese Military look like a good solution to that pain for many who remain hopeless for their futures.  We are here to help them find other ways to relieve their suffering. Many have come to us and many have been prevented from walking down the road to addiction.

 

So, 2020 is a year of celebration for us in the face of such a protracted situation.  We will be expanding our program inside Karen State. Unfortunately, we are suffering the same fate of many organizations of the Thai/Burma Border, as major International donors continue to withdraw their support from the refugees.  We are having to make adjustments and compromises in order to survive.  

 

But just be reassured that it is you and your support that keep us resourced and motivated.

Next report we will offer you some of the results of our annual evaluation.  In the meantime, work has begun in the refugee camps and in Karen State after a short holiday for all of us.

 

We keep to our motto A Free Mind Cannot be Destroyed
