Updates from Burma

We recently received an update from our partner in Burma (read more about this project here):

The political situation in Burma has been very cautiously improving. The government may even let the pro-democracy party register officially to contest future elections in the military-ruled state. There has been very little fighting during the heavy monsoon season this year. However, now that the rains are dying down, local people report the Burma Army outposts nearest to them are receiving resupplies of ammunition. The fear is that this is in preparation for attacks. Clinics, as always, keep their staff on alert and everything packed neatly in case of a hasty evacuation to the jungle hiding sites. Please keep them in your prayers.


The update also introduces us all to one of the medical staff. Her name is Hser Eh Krit, which means “sweet love of Christ.” In this photo she is laughing and teaching educational games to the village health workers so that they can spread knowledge about preventative medicine.

Are you particularly interested in this project and seeing it continue? You can give to this project here.
