Thank you so much for your continued support of Health & Hope. Especially at this time, your generosity is making a significant difference to the people in Myanmar who are tragically facing such challenging circumstances.
As you are aware, since the military coup took place on the 1st February, the people of Myanmar have faced a brutal and violent crackdown on human rights and liberties with over 800 civilians killed and thousands arrested. Daily life for many inside the country has become increasingly difficult without access to banking services and food supplies becoming extremely challenging.
Thankfully, Health & Hope staff are safe, but many are in hiding or have had 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. This includes the GlobalGiving fund for our Maternal Healthcare project. We hope to have this back up and running again as soon as we can, but currently are unable to continue this project in its current form.
If you are currently giving to this project, we would be pleased to receive your support through our Freedom to Education Project (FEP), which provides scholarships for students from Myanmar to complete their education outside the country. Funding for the FEP project will provide an essential lifeline for students unable to study inside Myanmar. You can find out more about this project on GlobalGiving by clicking on this link.
On behalf of all at Health & Hope, thank you again for your continued support and partnership at this difficult time.
