“Both of my parents passed away when I was a young boy. When I was small, my parents always told me that ‘Education is the best solution of a problem.’ It inspires me towards my goals. I studied in my village until Grade-6 when I fled to a refugee camp, but I had no goal. /1 Image
Now I want to be a medic, who works in the hospital.
Before I become a medic, I have to complete university.
Before I attend university, I have to finish my GED first.
By the grace of God, I have a chance to study in the @PartnersRelief GED program. /2
I am so blessed because some friends wanted this kind of chance, but they did not get it. My commitment to my people is that I will work and help them as much as I can. I hope you will continually give a hand to the Karen people. Our #Karen people rely on you.” /3
Our GED program prepares students to take an international GED exam and apply to colleges. With tertiary education, these students from #Myanmar are equipped to return to their villages as leaders that can solve problems and uplift their communities.

"#Myanmar faces economic collapse due to the combined effect of the new coronavirus and the coup, which in its [@UNDP] worst-case analysis could put nearly half the country’s 54 million people into poverty." - @Reuters


Poverty and food security have long been concerns for families in #Myanmar's ethnic states after decades of conflict and neglect. Kind, tenacious people, they want peace and self-sufficient tools to keep their children safe, healthy, and in school.
#WhatsHappeninglnMyanmar Image
We’ve been working alongside our friends in #Myanmar for 27 years. Over this time we have formed deep relationships with #Kachin, #Karen, #Shan and #Rohingya communities, always consulting with them to find out exactly what their needs are responding as rapidly as possible. Image

Even though there are multiple limitations to helping in conflict zones and #coronavirus spreading in displaced populations in #Syria, we are doing all we can to do just that.

We have sourced diagnostic kits from a lab and are currently pricing them out. 1/4
Our work in #Syria is in a fluid environment where war and political complexity have destroyed infrastructure. We depend on creative local team members to negotiate this chaotic terrain and have learned that it is possible to accomplish incredibly transforming interventions. 2/4
Once given Syrian government permission, the staff on our hospitainer will begin diagnosing #Covid19. In the meantime, they will treat those that present with the same symptoms as presumptive Covid19 and take precautionary measures to slow the spread of the virus in #Syria. 3/4
