I ran with the 2014 "Run for Burma" team for the Marine Corps Marathon and I had a great experience with this organization. They were very involved and were in contact with the runners on a weekly basis. I was extremely impressed by this organization and honored to run on their behalf.

Reading the history of who serves on the board was impressive. The fact that these people fly to unknown territory and bring medical supplies and needed water is a miracle!

To know about this mission gives me hope in humanity and soon I would like to be a volunteer.

Thank you Burma Mission,

God Bless,

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.
