Beauty out of Rubble

My team and I visited Myanmar this August to learn about a country that was grossly under-acknowledged. Most people can not even point out Myanmar on a map, and there are several reasons for this. 

A devastating natural disaster in 2008 that killed upwards of 148,000 thousand people and left an already poverty stricken country in ruins, coupled with a military government's oppression that left ships filled with food and supplies at bay, makes Myanmar one of the most under-acknowledged humanitarian concerns of our day. Luckily, we now have an opportunity to help.

Myanmar was recently among the most closed countries in the world, second only to North Korea, but it has since opened it's doors, allowing an opportunity to increase the quality of life of so many who have been struggling for decades. 

Now's our chance!

Our most important goal is to offer financial support to orphanage leaders for basic necessities such as food.  Eating three times a day for people in Myanmar is considered being well off (They Call it Myanmar). 

These children need food, and orphanage leaders need financial support to take care of the needs of any number of children. 

Breakdown- Transportation and expenses will be about $2,000. Anything that is raised over that will go directly to the orphanages. The hope is to continue to raise the funding goal as more and more money comes in. Aside from my capped expenses, everything will go to the orphanage leaders directly.
