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 for four months, as well as costs for transportation, communication, and nominal salaries for the coordinators.
