Thousands flee Burma as attacks escalate following sham “Elections”
Over the past three days tens of thousands of people have fled from Burma Army clashes and forced conscription. More than ten thousand fled the border town of Myawaddy into Mae Sot, Thailand, alone. There have also been confirmed clashes–including the launching of heavy artillery–in other parts of Karen State, Burma which have resulted in more than 10,000 people fleeing for the Thai border with only their clothes on their backs.
The situation is very tense and very fluid.
Partners Relief & Development is responding to this crisis. Clothes are being delivered, food supplied and a glimmer of hope restored. But, we need your help. For the past fifteen years, Partners Relief & Development has been on the front lines of practically loving the people of Burma, especially in times like these. We’ve only been able to do this, however, with your help. To give today, please give via our secure online donation page.
Please be praying for God to intervene and protect the least of these. Pray that their struggle will result in freedom. Pray believing that history can and will change and children will be able to live Free, Full Lives!
