Burma

Our reconstruction team in Burma achieves double their target.

After the devastating Cyclone Nargis a team of Every Home for Christ Myanmar workers and villagers constructed 290 bamboo houses, 13 village wells, 5 community halls, and 1 river jetty. They achieved more than twice the budgeted target of 140 houses and 2 wells. All on a budget of US$40,000 sent by Every Home for Christ. The Community Halls were an additional gift to the villages in the Delta, where virtually nothing was left standing after Cyclone Nargis. One of the halls is used as a coordination centre for cyclone-affected villages and the other as a village library. The other addition to the project was toilets for each house. The target was exceeded by so much because of the incredible favour that our team received from local villagers and businessmen, who showed overwhelming gratitude, donating cash and  materials and lowering the cost of purchase to an unimaginable price and also allowing the team to use their boats for travel within the township.

Funding for this work is provided by Every Home for Christ supporters and the current funding need is to provide an orphanage to help house the hundreds of children who lost both parents during the cyclone.

National workers take gospel literature home by home to every village in Burma. Funding is needed for this work.
