Sterling Burma Pin
The country of Burma sits on the shores of the Indian Ocean, just west of Thailand, and has been experiencing an escalation of violence by the ruling military junta toward its people. Recently, a rash of violence against peaceful protesters -- many of them Buddhist monks -- has drawn global attention to the denial of basic human rights and rampant poverty which has existed in the nation for decades.
Hand-cut and polished by skilled silversmiths in Peru, our Sterling Burma Pin is a simple, gleaming representation of your awareness and observance and is well-suited to sweater, jacket, lapel -- even a backpack.
As a member of the US Campaign for Burma, The Hunger Site strongly advocates grassroots changes to promote freedom, democracy, and human rights in Burma. Every Sterling Burma Pin sold will help fund medical care in a rural Burmese village, providing essential daily medicine, including antibiotics, anti-malarial drugs, vitamins, and a wide range of other medicines to treat illnesses common to rural Burma. This is in addition to the good you do by buying it here.
Pin measures approximately 1.5" L (3.8 cm) and has a tack-style closure. Handmade in and fair-trade imported from Peru.
