Our goal is to support and encourage the work of our brothers and sisters in Christ in the country of Myanmar and to support the ministries of their communities, giving special emphasis to helping with the ministries of their schools and in supporting children to enable them to attend school. We strive to demonstrate the love of Christ through works of service to these communities as well as to other Christian missions and missionaries in the country of Myanmar as we have opportunity – to be God’s “hands and feet” and His servants to His children in Myanmar.
Why Myanmar? Why should we help?
"You lift the poor and homeless out of the garbage dump and give them places of honor in royal palaces. You set the world on foundations, and they belong to you. " - 1 Samuel 2:8 CEV
Myanmar, which is also known by its former name of Burma, is located in Southeast Asia, bordering Bangladesh, India, China, Laos, and Thailand. Myanmar ranks as one of the poorest nations in Asia. One quarter of the population in Myanmar lives in poverty and as a result over 35% of children in Myanmar suffer from stunted growth due to chronic malnutrition and 8% of children are acutely malnourished. School life expectancy of Burmese children is only through the 8th grade and only half of school aged children will complete their primary education. Many children are forced to leave school and go to work to help support their family. As a result of these and other factors, 7% of Myanmar’s children will not live to see their 5th birthday.
In June of 2017, His Hands for Myanmar partnered with the Shalom Children's Home in Myanmar to help bring in the much-needed support to help cover both the living expenses and the school expenses of the 30+ children living in the home. For a small monthly sponsorship fee of $25 you can help an at-risk child with their living expenses or with their school expenses and help change their life! 100% of your sponsorship payment goes to the Children's Home on behalf of the sponsored child, none of it goes toward the administrative expenses of this program here in the United States. For more information, visit our Sponsorship page or contact us.
Please note - For security reasons, specific locations and individuals’ names will not be mentioned on this website. Children listed for sponsorship consideration will be listed by number only on this website.
