Projects To Support Refugees From Burma

Our charity seeks to advance education, preserve and protect health and assist in the relief of poverty and distress amongst refugees from Burma. We provide small annual grants to 2ndWW veterans

Founded 1998

  • Mission statement

    Projects to Support Refugees from Burma funds educational and humanitarian projects in some of the nine overcrowded refugee camps dotted along the Thai-Burma border. Help 4 Forgotten Allies, currently our major project provides 2nd WW veterans and widows with small annual grants. Most of the inmates of the camps, vast human warehouses - currently 141,890 - are Karen or Karenni, so-called ‘hill tribes’, persecuted, or worse, by the succession of ethnic Burman-dominated military governments. Although the political climate appears now to be rapidly changing, the camps remain, and refugees continue to arrive.
