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!
