Responding to hate with love is not for everyone. It is for us.
Children in Myanmar are staring down the double barrel of a pandemic and military coup that has displaced thousands. We can’t make either go away. But we can respond with food, shelter, medical care and more.Donate Now
Myanmar’s ethnic minorities are again under assault.
The story of what’s happening in Myanmar is bigger than the protests you may have seen on the news. The dramatic increase in displaced families is a direct result of the coup by a military that fears nothing: not sanctions, not protestors, not the sanctity of life. And it’s all unfolding as a deadly wave of COVID-19 surges across the country.
How you can help
We can’t make the long-term problems a pandemic and military rule in Myanmar go away. But we can address the short-term problem of I’m hungry, is there anything to eat?
Ensure families on the run aren’t left completely in the dark at night by supplying a flashlight.
Give families a pack of the most important staples to make sure everyone has enough to eat.

“The military has the authority to lead the country and harm ethnic minorities. They force them to leave and kill them even now.”- Partners staff member from Myanmar
We’ve been working alongside our friends in Myanmar for 27 years.
Over this time we have formed deep relationships with these communities, always consulting with them to find out exactly what their needs are and responding as rapidly as possible. And because we specialize in providing emergency assistance where conflict and political complexity impact the wellbeing of children and their families, we are well equipped to continue to deliver food and essential supplies despite the disruption of the military coup.
That’s how many people you've delivered relief items to in 2021.
To love is to respond.
When atrocities and injustice happen, it’s not enough to offer condolences and watch helplessly. Act on the imperative of love so children caught in the crossfire of Myanmar's conflicts can have free, full lives.Donate Now
