WHY IS OUR HELP NEEDED?
The rights of the people of Myanmar are abused on a daily basis.
People Migrating to Thailand
The journey across Thai borders and into unfamiliar communities exposes migrants to a range of dangers such as exploitation, abduction, and extortion. Burmese migrants have long lacked access to social services, human rights, and economic opportunities. While most are unaware of their rights, they are often too scared to seek help, feel discriminated against, or cannot speak the Thai language.
People Living in Myanmar
After the 2015 election, FED began programs in education, nutrition/income generation, advocacy, safe migration, and peace building in Myanmar to give people better opportunities close to home. Along the border, we assist migrants with a safe departure and ensure returnees are provided assistance in their journey going home.
