Details

Refugees often are not able to have financial reserves for emergencies. In case of an injury or another crisis situation, not only are they not able to afford medical care but their often precarious living arrangements may be jeopardised. Experience of the activists involved in the Burma Charity Fund has shown that even the smallest amount of money can make a big difference as it enables the poor to afford food and receive immediate medical help. The project ensures the basic survival of the individuals and their families and building a better society for all.


Shares purchased in this project contribute to raising Burma Charity Fund's emergency relief fund.

Progress Update

From April to June 2013, Burma Charity Fund used the BCP grant to assist 15 Burmese refugee families and from July to September 2013, BCF supported 29 refugee families experiencing some crisis situation. Total of 44 families were served thanks to the funds available from the BCP microgrant.

Most of the families were caught by unexpected bills for medical care and the small financial help from BCF helped them to bridge this situation without falling into additional problems such as late rent payments.

Two of the families were assisted to cope with the financial requirements of a death of a loved one and were very grateful for support in such a difficult time in their lives.
