As conflict persists, many children and families have no choice but to flee their villages, missing out on basic needs such as education and healthcare.
For nearly three years, Myanmar has experienced internal conflict and escalating violence, leading to widespread displacement and poverty. More than 982,000 people, forced to flee their homes due to violence, now seek refuge amidst bombings and landmine incidents.
As the conflict persists, people are forced to abandon their villages, depriving them of necessities like food, education and healthcare. Thirteen-year-old Thiri* and her family are among those now living away from home and seeking the support of the church.
The Church in Myanmar and a team of passionate and faithful missionaries are on a mission to provide a lifeline to children like Thiri and their families. Basic food packs are distributed to vulnerable communities. Each pack is filled with staple ingredients such as rice, chickpeas and cooking oil to relieve pressure on families and provide hope for a better future. It costs $360,000 to distribute food parcels to 2,000 families, or simply, $180 per family.
The Church in Myanmar is working tirelessly to support vulnerable children and families by providing essential food packs, basic healthcare and clothing, as well as education and stationery.
To ensure that the Church in Myanmar and passionate missionaries can support 2,000 more internally displaced families in areas of greatest need, your action today is essential.
Support children and families by offering hope for a better future to internally displaced families in Myanmar.
Amid the conflict, Thiri holds onto hope. One day, she wants to be a teacher. However, ongoing conflicts and a shortage of food bring uncertainty over her next meal and the hope of returning home one day.
Over 2,000 families, including Thiri's, await life-giving support now.
You can help ensure the Church in Myanmar can continue to reach out to children and families, providing a hand up when it’s needed most.
With your faithful support, we can deliver life-saving food packs to people in conflict areas who have been forced to flee their homes. Importantly, any gift you make today will also help many other Church-led mission programs in vulnerable communities around the world.
Will you partner with us to help provide essential food packs to many more families just like Thiri’s who desperately need our support this Christmas?
