Thailand Update 5/15

The civil war in Myanmar has undergone escalations in recent months with intensified fighting. This has resulted in various humanitarian implications, that even extend to Thailand as Burmese refugees, particularly children, seek asylum from the war.
The influx of Burmese children into Thailand was brought to our attention and our organization was requested to come to Thailand and assess the needs and consider ways we can help.
These minors have experienced a considerable amount of trauma in their young lives. Many have lost their parents, some have been sent away by their parents to Thailand for safety and a better future while being unable to migrate themselves… others completely abandoned.
In some cases we encountered, the legal guardian even considered selling the child.
There are endless difficult stories and cases.
During our scout trip we were particularly impacted by a children’s home & school where we heard many accounts and met the children first hand.
The home supports up to around 600 children with the majority being orphan refugees from Burma. This number may rise even further due the unpredictable nature of the crisis. The home was found to be in need of financial assistance and staff assistance to improve the well being of the children. So we have committed to have a team present for the upcoming school year to provide food for the children, so that they would have sufficient nourishment and a balanced diet as well as volunteers to assist the present staff with the day-to-day running of the home and sharing the love of Jesus and making a lasting impact in their lives.
Stay tuned for ways you can get involved!
