In October 2017, food support was cut off by another aid organisation to more than 6.000 Shan refugees living in six different camps – including our partner, Koung Jor Shan Refugee Camp (KJSRC). However, thanks to the continued generosity of our sponsors, especially the Brodtbeck Philanthropy Foundation, we are able to help KJSRC, by providing food as needed until funding is restored. KJSRC has more than 400 residents, 132 of whom are children.
Without our support to bridge the gap, these refugees, children and families would not have known where their next meal was coming from.
For futher background information please see this article from Relief Web.
A big thanks to Peter Brodtbeck and the Brodtbeck Philanthropy Foundation for their emergency sponsorship of this important project.
Goals and Results
The goal of this project is to provide short-term emergency food support to Koung Jor Shan Refugee Camp while more funding is reestablished.
