Victim Support in Myanmar
On February 1, 2021 everything changed for the people of Myanmar. The Myanmar Military, claiming false elections, began arresting standing members of parliament and the democratically elected officials. A national state of emergency was declared for one year. At that time people began gathering in the streets in protest, stating that the military did not have that authority as they were not the elected officials of the country.
Since that day citizens continue to conduct peaceful protests for democracy. Self-owned businesses have closed and many who work in government service have refused to work and support the military. At first the Myanmar Military allowed these protests, but in recent weeks they have turned deadly. Snipers have started shooting into crowds and even killing people standing on their apartment balconies in the cities. Those who refused to work their government jobs have been abducted at night. Many remain missing while others have been returned to their families the next morning, dead. Hundreds of people have died in the cities and hundreds of people have been abducted. Due to poor internet connections in rural areas, there has been very little reporting of numbers of those who have died or been abducted.
We are partnering with a network of well organized citizens of Myanmar to provide food, money and basic essentials to support the families of the people who have been killed or abducted.
Please donate to this fund to provide much needed support to the families of those who have lost loved ones in this coup. These supplies will be distributed to people living in both rural and urban areas in Myanmar.
