😍A dream came true when people like you and partnering organizations worked together to build a water purifier at our Unified Learning Center for Burmese migrant children in Thailand. Because of your generosity and care, all 600+ students now have access to sustainable clean drinking water throughout the day. We can't express our gratitude enough; the least we can do is show the end result with a video! We can all make a difference if we choose to πŸ₯°πŸ™πŸ€ ... See MoreSee Less

ATTACK ON DAW NOE KHU IDP CAMP IN KARENNI (KAYAH) STATE
=============
Mae Hong Son, 12/7/2023 – In the early hours of July 12, 2023, a distressing incident occurred at the Daw Noe Khu Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp situated near the Thailand-Myanmar border. At approximately 12:56 am, the Myanmar military carried out an air strike on the camp, causing significant damage to the IDP high school and casualties.

The military junta's brutal tactics, specifically their deliberate targeting of civilians through airstrikes, have instilled fear and terror among the vulnerable population. Tragically, one person was killed and three sustained injuries due to this attack. The IDPs include over one thousand students studying at the camp and Seh-Tae high school. An IDP clinic and shelters have been damaged. The IDP has expressed deep concern and attempted to seek refuge by crossing the Thailand border. The Thai military has temporarily allowed them to stay on the Thailand side for their safety.

Thankfully, many IDPs could seek shelter in the bomb shelters, which minimized the potential loss of life. The situation would have been even more catastrophic if the Myanmar air strike had occurred during daylight hours.

We strongly condemn this heinous act of violence and call upon the international community to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Karenni (Kayah) State. The displaced population's safety and well-being are paramount, and immediate action must be taken to protect their lives and provide them with the necessary assistance and support.

We urgently appeal to humanitarian organizations, governments, and concerned individuals to extend their help and resources to aid the affected IDPs during this critical time. The international community must unite and exert pressure on the Myanmar military regime to halt their attacks on innocent civilians and uphold the fundamental rights of all individuals.

Our thoughts and sympathies go out to the victims and their families as they navigate this challenging and distressing situation. We remain committed to working tirelessly to restore peace, stability, and justice for the people of Karenni (Kayah) State.

The IDP population in the Daw Noe Khu IDP camp is as follows:
β€’ Number of households: 837
β€’ Total population: 4,854
β€’ Number of males: 2,437
β€’ Number of females: 2,417
β€’ Number of children under 15 years old: 1,373

Soon, all our 600+ students will have access to clean drinking water. Construction has been ongoing. The housing of the water purification system is nearly finished. Once done, the installation will start. We will get to test the quality of the water (super exciting!), followed by training to operate and maintain the system.

This is a sustainable investment. We will save on monthly expenses purchasing drinking water. This project serves several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, such as SDG 6 "Clean water and sanitation", and SDG 12 "Responsible consumption and production".

Thanks to all donors β€” you are amazing!

Over the past few months we were able to raise enough funds for our Clean Drinking Water project. Thanks to all donors, we can now start collaborating with local partners for the construction and installation of a water purification system at the Unified Learning Center for Burmese children in Thailand.

Soon, all our 600+ students will have access to sustainable clean drinking water and leftover funds will be used to purchase refillable drinking bottles for the students. We could not have done this without the help of everyone who donated and shared - you are all amazing!

We will keep everyone posted here on Facebook and on our website at: fedgrassroots.org/completed-clean-drinking-water-durable-bottles-for-600-children/

We're so excited to finally be able to do the student exchange with the American School of The Hague (Netherlands) again without Covid interfering. Yesterday, together with our friends from Global Vision International, that also gave a presentation about pollution and marine life, we went to the beach with a massive ~100 people strong and cleaned up a lot of trash! We thank the local police department and the village headman for taking the time to participate as well. Great job everyone! ... See MoreSee Less
