BURMA LIFELINE
November 26, 2010

This is a wonderful organization founded by a woman who lived in Burma before the military junta seized the govt. 48 years ago. She now lives in Boulder. Colorado and runs the non-profit from here. 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.
