As you will learn from these pages, the isolated Wa people of Myanmar (Burma) are in great need of the basic necessities of life.

Donations are welcome and very helpful but additionally there are other more direct ways to help.

For example, immediate needs include medicine, dental and medical equipment, clothing, educational books, and dietary supplements.

Help is also needed in the form of education, information, training and assistance in agricultural and husbandry.

We ask those who are willing to help to network their resources; to ask their churches, local NGO's, schools and businesses if there is something they can contribute to the cause.

If you would like to participate in bringing assistance to the Wa people of Myanmar please visit our Contact page to get in touch with us.

Thanking you in advance.
