Transport for mobility restricted Burmese migrants

by Foundation for Education and Development (GHRE)


Dear Supporters,
We are pleased to present to you our 2010 Annual Report, hoping that it gives you a greater sense of the work and the accomplishments of the Foundation for Education and Development (FED) in the past year.   These results could have not been achieved without the support of individuals, foundations, corporations, and governments from around the world.   On behalf of the Board of Directors, our staff and the Burmese community we would like to thank our supporters who have enable us to achieve so much this last year, and to extend a warm welcome to those who are reading about our work for the first time.  


Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for your generous contributions. I would like the assure you that every cent or penny of your donation has helped a Burmese migrant reach their destination and their most basic needs.

Transportation remains our greatest and most essential cost. None of our projects could function with out the provision of transportation. Children cannot go to school, injured patients cannot get to hospital, women cannot reach their vocational training classes.....

It costs $3,335 or £2,070 to send 500 children to their learning centre or nursery for just one month.

Thank you so much for helping us to reach our target so that Burmese migrants can receive medical treatment and our migrant children can stay out of work and continue to receive an education.

Dear Donors,

Thank for your support over the past 3 months. Your kind contributions have helped to support students in reaching their learning centre so that they can study rather than work, and injured patients to reach hospital when every minute counts.

Many people take for granted their access to transport and their ability to move freely wherever and whenever they wish. Often you will here people moaning about how late the bus was or the delays caused by traffic jams and road works but in times of emergency the question of whether we can get to hospital doesn't even enter our heads.

Without the transportation supplied by FED migrant children are not be able to attend school and many workers are unable to get to hospital to receive their medication or emergency assistance.

Every penny and cent that you donate counts and is helping to save lives!

On behalf of the Burmese migrant community and their children we wish to send you a big, BIG THANK YOU for your continued support.
