ABOUT THE COUNTRY

Myanmar, formerly Burma, is located in Asia, just east of India and south of China.  In 2008, Cyclone Nargis left a devastating mark on the country. As one of the deadliest storms in recorded history, the cyclone killed over 138,000 people, displaced thousands more, and destroyed homes, businesses, schools, and agricultural jobs. This tragedy, coupled with military rule and poor economic management, has left the country as the poorest in Southeast Asia.  The children are especially affected by this dire poverty, and are at-risk of being trafficked for labor or commercial sex trade.

THE PROGRAM

Orphaned. Abandoned. Victims of natural disaster. Invisible, unseen by the outside world because they live in large, crowded cities or remote villages. Poor and malnourished, left alone to fend for themselves without hope for a bright future. These are the children VisionTrust serves in Myanmar.

VisionTrust’s goal is to help Myanmar in their long-term recovery. In this restricted country where many struggle to make ends meet, God has provided nearly 100 VisionTrust Transitional Homes and Learning Centers to help the children in Myanmar succeed. Each day they receive food, education, and discipleship. By experiencing the overwhelming love and grace of God, these children gain a true sense of hope for their lives and the future.

MEET OUR LOCAL HERO

As a young boy, our Local Hero had a vision to serve orphaned and underprivileged children, but as he became older that vision became less of a priority. In 2011, he suffered a stroke and then lost his eldest son within a short period of time. It was then he and his wife dedicated their lives to serving the Lord by serving children (their son’s passion), and joined VisionTrust in 2012.
