Run for Burma is the charity running team of Burma Humanitarian Mission. We provide medicine and medic training to backpack medics operating throughout the conflict zones of eastern and northern Burma where the Burma army continues to inflict violence on the Karen and other ethnic minorities villagers. The army routinely steals land and livestock, shoots men and boys, rapes women to intimate them.

As a result of the Burma Army’s violence:

  • 1 in 7 children die before their 5th birthday – 10 times the rate in Thailand
  • The maternal mortality rate is 15 times the rate in Thailand and 54 times higher than in the U.S.
  • 1 in 5 suffer from malaria
  • 1 in 5 from Acute Respiratory Infection (pneumonia)
  • 60% of all children’s deaths could have been prevented with basic medicines

Collectively, we will raise money to fund medical training and supplies for backpack medics who travel through the jungles of eastern Burma, treating ethnic groups oppressed by the Burmese junta. Each $1 will buy 50 doses of medicine. $5 will cure a pregnant woman of malaria – saving 2 lives. $25 will buy the penicillin needed for a backpack medic team for six months – treating 2,000 people. This year Burma Humanitarian Mission will train two-thirds of all new medics while providing a million doses of medicine.

Your support is tax deductible and Burma Humanitarian Mission will provide you the necessary paperwork.

Thank you for your kindness and support.
