Details

Most Burmese refugees in Delhi do not have access to medical care and many do not have enough money to meet their basic needs. With this project, BCF will provide financial assistance to the most needy in the Burmese refugee community. In its experience, even the small amount of money it is able to provide has enabled people to buy food or get medical help. This helps ensure the survival of individual and their families and a better life for all.

You can help by contributing to Burma Charity Fund's emergency relief fund.

Words from the Microgrant Recipient

"We think that we success in our plan to help the Burmese people, who are in need of medical care, food, etc... We were able to meet our goals. Most of the beneficiaries of our Burma Charity Fund were the people who were very sick … We think that the help we gave them are beneficial in some way. We may say we face no problems in implementing our work. The main reason is that because of the limited fund, we could not publicize our work. When we heard that there was a problem, we help them without discrimination regarding community or the place they live."
