BridgeBurma

BridgeBurma is an online innovative educational platform created by Burmese diaspora for the Burmese local youth community. In the first phase of their COVID-19 fundraiser campaign, they donated around 12,500 surgical masks to the Ministry of Health and Sports (MoHS), in partnership with the Ko Ye Foundation. The second phase of their campaign is currently targeting street vendors in the city of Yangon (Rangoon) whose livelihoods have been significantly impacted by COVID-19 and who are currently at risk of poverty. In partnership with Do Eain, a social enterprise, BridgeBurma has a database of 3,000 vendors in need of immediate support and this number is growing daily. Every Friday, Do Eain donates 10,000MMK (7.14 USD, i.e. two days’ worth of minimum wage) to vendors in different townships in Yangon. To date, BridgeBurma has donated 2,000,000MMK (1,425 USD), helping 200 vendors, prioritising the most impoverished townships. With each additional 1,425 USD, another 200 vendors will benefit. Every dollar counts!

Regional Relief has done its best to list charities that are credible. These charities are, to the best of our knowledge, using donations to help people in need during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Based on our current knowledge, it is unlikely that donations will be mismanaged and we have sought to be as transparent as possible with our reasons for selecting the charities that we list. 

 

We do recommend that all prospective donors look up these charities online to obtain as much information as they need to make an informed decision on whether to donate. All donors choose to donate to charities of their choice and on their own volition.  

 

We do not assume responsibility for any mismanagement of donations by the charities themselves as we do not handle any of the donations ourselves and are in no formal contractual relationship with any of these organisations. All donations go directly from donors to the listed organisations. 

 

If you do come across any irregularity with any of our listed charities, we ask that you please notify us. We will de-list the charity concerned and investigate the matter.
