They support Burmese refugees who live in camps in Thailand including 400 Burmese orphans who are provided with schooling. Donations help support 4 clinics serving more than 7,000 refugees who have managed to escape from Burma and who are stateless.

It is run locally at a minimum expense. The fundraising is minimal and mainly word of mouth or through the annual newsletter. The niece of the founder co-ordinates the funding for projects in Thailand.
