Emergency Meals for Schoolchildren in Burma

Item # 50091

When ethnic and religious violence boils over after decades of simmering tensions, it is the children who can suffer the most.

Imagine being a child in Burma's Rakhine State -- a mountainous and remote area that has suffered more than its share of economic decline and stagnation. One day, a group of outsiders sets fire to your village and you are left homeless -- without insurance, government protection, or stability. You don't know why this bitter, decades-old feud has flared up, and you also don't know where your next meal will come from. You only know that your house is gone, your stomach is empty, and your family is afraid.

This is the situation for many children along the Burma-Bangladesh border today. Ethnic violence between the predominantly Buddhist Rakhines and the predominantly Muslim Rohingyas reached a crisis point with a widely-publicized crime against a young girl. In the weeks since, each side has retaliated with more and more violence -- leading to the situation now, in which several Rakhine villages have been burned to the ground.

Partners Asia is working to meet the needs of the innocent victims of the destruction: the children, teachers, and young monks of three hard-hit schools. Over 650 people at a total of three schools -- Wai Tha Li School, Wai Lu Wun School, and Kaymarmandine School -- need our help.

Your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ feeds schoolchildren and young monks as their communities struggle to rebuild.


For more than 20 years, Partners Asia has been supporting community initiatives to improve the lives of the most vulnerable among the people of Burma. Partners Asia bridges the gap between Burma communities and global resources.
