Burma Humanitarian mission is a great non-profit organization. The people involved, that I know, are honest, caring and truly dedicated in the cause for helping and improving the lives of the oppressed people in Burma, as well as the displaced refugees. Thank you for all your hard work, and special thanks to Jennifer Zurick Witte, who is instrumental in making all this possible.

Although I have not been able to physically participate in any of the BMH volunteer opportunities, I believe this to be a worthy and righteous cause. Through education of dedicated members of BMH, I have come to understand the necessity and strength of this organization. Job well done, money well spent. It's time to erase and eliminate all human suffering and brutality, so to this organization; only praise and continued support!

After having traveled to Burma in 1999, I was forever touched by the people struggling with their oppressive government, and since then I've been looking for a way to help. Burma Humanitarian Mission is grassroots, tiny, and therefore incredibly effective in helping Burma's beleaguered ethnic minorities with basic health needs.

I have traveled to Southeast Asia and seen the abhorent conditions inflicted on the Karen and other ethnic Burmese minorities. There is tremendous need in many areas: education, health and medical. Burma Humanitarian Mission is an exceptional organization. It has long-standing ties with Karen and others who can focus the assitance provided gets directly to those who need it, in the jungles fleeing for their lives. BHM operates with very low costs and ensures 100% of individual donations buy medicines or trains medics. They have a heart of gold!
