Many Burmese refugees living outside of the country such as in India have difficulties to follow the mass media in English or in Hindi. Because it is crucial to have the public informed and aware of the situations within and outside of Burma, publishing a monthly news journal in the Matu language can ultimately contribute to building a better Burma by sowing the seed of democracy in the hearts of the people. With access to the updated news of both national and international situations, Burmese refugees will have a better understanding of democracy and  be ready to bring true democracy to Burma.                                  

You can help to cover the costs of publishing the Matu Herald News Journal for six months from May to October 2013. This includes collecting, editing, printing and distributing of the news journal.
