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

Rating: 5 stars  

Wow! This group is 100% Wow!

Burma Humanitarian Mission is committed -- completely committed to helping one of the world's most under-served and unrecognized communities there is. Burma's ethnic minorities have endured decades of abuse and violence at the hands of the country's military. The most recent assault on the Rohingya in western Burma mirrors the oppression foisted upon the Karen, Kachin and others in eastern and northern Burma.

BHM is compassionate -- they focus on delivering the most critical aid needed -- basic medicine, mother-child health and community health resources. The result is impressive -- reduction in the number of people getting sick which translates to far fewer people dying (not to mention a far better quality of life).

I've volunteered with a number of agencies over the past few decades, and few have such an awesome and direct impact. And what's truly beautiful about it is that BHM helps the ethnic minorities help themselves. Wow! That's American values in action!
