Fantastic organization comprised of highly motivated, intelligent and friendly people. I was able to easily communicate with the Run for Burma organizers and felt supported from the beginning.

This organization has used funding to travel into Burma and bring medication, train medics, provide educational material and clothing to the Karen people who have been disenfranchised by the military junta. They have done this work tirelessly and have now created an education fund in my son, Jeremy's name to provide educational opportunities for Burmese people who can get this wonderful scholarship. I have worked with other charity organizations and this particular organization operates with integrity and with a minimum of our donated dollars going to operations and a maximum going to the people in Burma.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make certain more people support it!

I cannot say enough about the selfless work done by this organization! I have volunteered in the past with fund raisers and actions against the oil pipelines using slave labor in Burma. Every year, this group goes into Burma, facing constant danger from both the military and the jungles, to bring necessary medicines, educational materials and clothing to the Karen people living in jungle villages. Every year money is raised to directly help a population who has suffered constant abuse and genocide. I am proud to be able to support this excellent non-profit organization that channels every donation to the people of Burma who desperately need it.

I’ve known and supported Burma Humanitarian Mission for the past 4 years. The people at Burma Mission are great! They are committed to helping the people of Burma and ensure the maximum amount of each donation gets the most medicine to those who need it. They are selfless and dedicated to what they do. Burma Mission is a great organization that really makes things happen.

Part of the Run for Burma marathon team. Great organization, easy to work with and focused on important issues. Appears to be well-run based on all my interactions with them.

I have been working with community-based organizations on the Thailand-Burma border since 2005 and can appreciate the work the BHM is doing because it's quality over quantity. Small amounts of money and handfuls of dedicated people can make a big difference in this setting. This year is the second time I've signed up to run the Marine Corps Marathon with Run for Burma, and I am happy to support BHM's work through this cause.

Conditions in eastern Burma remain horrid and appauling. The backpack medics role is expanding for as additional people are returning to their villages. The Burma government still does not provide any medical care into eastern Burma; rather they are using funds to reinforce their soldiers and military forces instead. The Burma army continues to assault the villagers, steal land, force individuals to work without pay and rape without impunity or accountability. The people remain living in fear.

Nonetheless, disease and illness stalks the people. Without any care, mortality rates remain horrendous.

Burma Humanitarian Mission is an outstanding organization who provides medicines that the backpack medics. They provide a viable conduit for me and others to make a difference -- a real difference. The dollars donated go directly to help people. It's neat. Warm-hearted organization.

Burma Humanitarian Mission is one of those quiet but highly effective and efficient organizations that zeros in on human suffering and makes a profound impact. There are few others than can have as much impact for the effort as BHM does. The suffering they have focused on is very real. The medicines and medics they train make a profound difference. This is one organization where, if you are part of it, your time, commitment and cash will go directly to tangible differences you can see. They save lives...and why not be part of something so compelling in the face of abhorant cruelty?

Burma Humanitarian Mission is one of the more efficient, "lean and mean" organizations I have encountered. A very high percentage of their donations actually make it into the hands of the people they help in he form of medicine and supplies to combat a whole host of primarily health care issues, the main one being Malaria. The growth they have sustained in even the most difficult economic times is impressive, and the volunteers, board members, advisors and donors are the highest quality people in terms of selfless giving and compassionate service to others.

BHM is an excellent organization! I've been involved in various ways over the past 6 years. BHM does an amazing job of training back pack medics to work in conflict zones. Their commitment to the ethnic peoples of Burma is incredible. In addition to working with community based health care in Burma they also help provide education scholarships to young girls and the children of the backpack medics. The healthcare and education BHM makes possible truly changes lives. BHM is well respected by community based organizations in Burma.

I am Bhanyar Janumonya, the president of Myanmar Indigenous Community of Utah (MICU). MICU is a non-profit organization that combining seven Myanmar ethnic groups include Arakan, Chin, Kachin, Karen, Karenni, Mon and Shan. The MICU’s mission statement is to creating a forum by pooling resources from members and the community at large with the view to helping build and develops the organizational capacity of each of the seven ethnic-based communities through networking, educating and training, advocacy, mentoring, collaborating and partnerships. Since 2009 when the organization was founded, all board members are working so hard in order to help organization growth. However, without experience, knowledge and supports in this country, the organization is not growing as expected. Board members are struggling in finding resources especially with financial assistance.

A couple months ago, Jennifer Zurick, director of Burmese Humanitarian Mission, introduced herself to me and offered helps. With her capability, she quickly set up a 5K-Run-for Refugee Event to raise money for MICU during refugee month. She invited many special people from other agencies to get involve with this event, especially with this person that I can’t forget to mention him Mike, Chair of Board, Burmese Humanitarian Mission. Together we raised more $5000.00 that all goes into MICU account to spend on culture events and youth scholarship.

So, I am not surprise at all why people are saying that the Burmese Humanitarian Mission is a great non-profit organization because they have amazing people like Mike and Jen. They are amazing leaders!!!

I’ve witnessed the work of Burma Humanitarian Mission since its early beginnings with events that were held in supporters' back yards with silent auction items made by the volunteers and food prepared by members of the Burma community. I've been honored to be associated with the dedicated caring people who are BHM. Through their hard work and persistence the fund raising efforts have become more sophisticated, which has resulted in more assistance for the people of Burma.
