MIGRANTS & REFUGEES
CRISIS FOOD AID
Challenges: Burmese migrants in the slums of Maesot have no opportunity to receive needed education and have difficulty finding suitable work.
Solution: We register a Christian Burmese migrant school in the border town of Maesot, Thailand.
About 150 migrant children from the infamous Burmese slum environment receive essential Christian and academic education.
ACUTE HUNGER AND MALNUTRITION
Challenges: The civil war in Myanmar forces hundreds of Thousands of Burmese to flee for their lives. Many refugees hide along the Thai-Myanmar border. Because of their illegal status, refugees cannot seek legal work and income. The results are devastating, as most refugees suffer from hunger and malnutrition.
Solution: The Avoda Foundation distributes free food aid to suffering refugees. In 2022 Avoda fed 1'110 refugees, and the goal for 2023 is to support 2'000 refugees with healthy food aid.
