Support for families of protest victims

The military junta in Myanmar has been brutally suppressing democracy protests since the military attempted to seize power in an illegitimate coup on 1 February 2021. In a bid to retain control, the military has launched a crackdown using live ammunition and combat zone weaponry used with sadistic cruelty, as it has against the ethnic states for decades.

All people across Myanmar now need urgent support.

Injuries of civilians are escalating. On the streets, bodies are being mutilated, permanent brain damage inflicted, youths now paralysed from the hip down, arms and hands being shot off at close range.

More than 700 people have now been killed by security forces.

Over 3000 people are being detained.

In military detention, students, striking civil servants, and many others are tortured. Those who are not tortured to death will have long-term mental health scars and or disabilities.

Direct financial assistance is urgently needed for these families and communities amidst a COVID-19 pandemic, utter economic devastation, and daily repression.

Please help with a donation today. Your donation will help support the families of casualties and injured protesters.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Advance Myanmar to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Advance Myanmar we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Advance Myanmar to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Advance Myanmar will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Advance Myanmar receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
