Review for Burma Humanitarian Mission, Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a BHM board member for 4 years, I have a unique view into the organization. I have never worked with more dedicated and ethical people and it is a privilege to be able to serve on the Board with them.

The Board is active in the events sponsored by BHM to raise funds for community healthcare, education and and human rights for the people of Myanmar/Burma. We run, we make soap, we write endless letters to fundraise, and write grant proposals, all as volunteers. Except for one small part time position for our Executive Director.

The organizations which receive funds from BHM's efforts are few. That way, the dollars are concentrated and have great impact on the people of Burma served by the recipient organizations. There is person-to-person contact with the organizations which BHM serves. We collaborate with the recipients, meeting their real needs rather than imposing what we think they might need. Contact is frequent and BHM is relied on as a compassionate organization, with people willing to stretch to meet the needs presented.

As a BHM Board member, I am always happy to talk with anyone who is curious about BHM or has suggestions and information which could be helpful to us.
As a donor, which I was before I became a board member (and still am), I have complete faith that the funds received are distributed in the highest and best use.

Review for Burma Humanitarian Mission, Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is a tremendous privilege to serve on the Burma Humanitarian Mission Board of Directors. I have known of BHM since 2010. Impressed with their focus on supporting the people of Burma since 1999 and maintaining an ethical, transparent and dedicated organization, I asked if our fundraising efforts for Minmahaw School on the Thai-Burma border could work under the BHM umbrella. They welcomed us and support our vision for the school while helping us expand how and what we do. I was deeply honored to be asked to join the board and feel fortunate to work with a group of people who make every dollar count. They respond with compassion and real action to various health, education and human rights needs of the people of Burma, while taking the time to educate others who are interested in their (our) mission. A truly vigorous organization!
