Emergency Food Aid + Training Kitchen & Bakery Contents for Vulnerable Communities in Myanmar
OUR GOAL: $70,000
EMERGENCY FOOD AID for vulnerable communities and internally displaced people (IDP) during the present Myanmar crisis.
IMMEDIATE OPPORTUNITY to purchase the full contents of a Training Kitchen & Bakery and relocate it to northern Myanmar as part of Nation to Nation’s vocational initiative to train vulnerable women and youth.
250,000 Myanmar villagers have fled from increasing conflict
An estimated 30,000 villagers have fled to the Thai/Myanmar border to seek refuge from increasing conflict. Without help, many drink the polluted river water and disease and diarrhea add to their struggles to survive.
Nation to Nation is joining the urgent response by providing clean water, food, canned sardines, soy milk, and survival supplies to help 3,000 of these displaced people.
Many face undeserved suffering
The Myanmar people are suffering in horrible ways as the crisis continues to escalate. Inflation is up 35% in a month, banks are closed, there is violence and conflict on the streets, and the internet and cell phone data is inaccessible. The poor are crying out for food and water as many find their access cut off and some can't even return to the IDP (internally displaced people) camps because of blocked roads.
And yet, there is hope to be found in all situations.
We are positioned to respond immediately
SpringHope will provide urgent food aid for vulnerable communities that is sourced and transported in-country, keeping agri-farmers afloat during this crisis season. Delivery and distribution of sardines, beans, rice, flour, eggs, and oil is our response to the recent report that by the end of April, 3.5 million citizens will be without access to basic food.
We are believing that God will multiply our loaves and fish to feed many.
Outfitting Nation to Nation's northern Myanmar LIFEHUB
We have an amazing immediate offer to purchase the total contents of a Training Kitchen & Bakery that is shifting gears from retail. The bakery and training school has trained and spawned businesses for many vulnerable Myanmar women and is a popular bakery in Yangon.
We will purchase and transport the entire Training Kitchen & Bakery contents from spoons, forks and plates to appliances, counters, furniture and accessories. We will also be able to use the translated training materials and hire one of two experienced Burmese trainers from the bakery to help us get started.
