In August 2016, LWR shipped quilts and baby care kits to our partner in Thailand – The Border Consortium (TBC).
The Border Consortium is an alliance of NGOs that has been working with displaced Burmese people in Thailand to respond to their humanitarian needs and strengthen their self-sustainability since 1984. Your donation of baby care kits and quilts will serve as basic commodities to supplement what the refugees have, which are very limited, and will be very useful during the cold season (which starts in November). This distribution is expected to reach many people in 9 refugee camps, supported by TBC, in remote locations close to the Thai-Burma border.
Departed LWR warehouse: August 4, 2016
Status: Distribution complete, December 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017
