GoalThe goal of this project is to provide medical supplies and food for the medical clinics and mobile hospitals in rural Myanmar.
SummaryThis White Cross project seeks to raise $11,764 annually for the Myanmar Baptist Convention.
DescriptionMyanmar (Burma) is located in a disaster prone region of the world, and the very poor are often those least able to recover from devastating events. The Myanmar Baptist Convention (MBC) provides assistance by helping those in small rural villages who need medical care and food. By providing nutritious foods, they help fight off diarrhea, dehydration and death. The MBC is committed to bringing life in all its fullness to everyone. One of the ways it lives out this mandate is by operating medical clinics and mobile hospitals throughout Myanmar, especially along the border with China. It is able to offer medical care through White Cross funding. It is anticipated this project will improve the quality of life for hundreds of people served by the MBC by providing them with basic nutritional foods and accessible health care. This project will be managed by Rev. Mahn San Thein Tun and by Dr. Zaw Win, general secretary of the Myanmar Baptist Convention, a longtime IM partner.
