Advance Myanmar is founded and run by a team of people with decades of experience of the humanitarian and human rights situation in Myanmar/Burma. We provide humanitarian assistance at times of crisis, but also assist local communities to promote positive change to tackle the root causes of those crises.
We maximise our impact by supporting organisations and communities who receive little or no support from larger donors. Working directly with local community organisations reduces costs on administration ensuring more aid reaches the communities. In addition, by working with and supporting local community organisations, we help empower communities to address their own problems rather than being passive recipients of aid. Affected communities are best placed to ensure help goes where it is most needed and will have the most impact.
Since the military coup on 1st February, Advance Myanmar has provided emergency aid for tens of thousands of people in remote parts of Burma who are fleeing attacks by the Burmese military.
