Health & Hope remains concerned about recent political developments in Myanmar.
Our in-country staff are currently safe and well, and will continue to deliver essential services to rural communities as planned after a short break to review security considerations. The safety of our staff is paramount to us, and as such we will continue to review the conditions to ensure we can work safely, whilst remaining responsive to the needs on the ground.
As a non-political organisation, we stand alongside the people of Myanmar in the hope that a peaceful resolution to the current situation will be found.
Having worked through periods of political uncertainty in the past, we remain resolute in our mission, and will continue to provide non-discriminatory humanitarian aid and development services to those in need.
Some have asked how you can support communities in light of recent events. We are continuing to assess the situation on the ground to identify any short-term needs as they develop. Giving a gift to our general fund will enable us to respond swiftly to these needs as they arise.
Especially at this time, we are so grateful for your continued support and partnership.
