URGENT APPEAL

Posted in Fundraising Events on 26th June 2013

Project Myanmar: We urgently need help to secure just under 5,000 USD (just over £3,000) to deliver a music therapy skill-sharing project to local staff working with disabled children in Myanmar (Burma).

We have been working with Tsvia Horesh, an Israeli Music Therapist, to develop a project destined for a special school in Yangon, Myanmar this September. It is estimated that there are more than 1 million physically disabled people in Myanmar, the majority of whom don’t receive sufficient care. There is only one public special school for physically and mentally disabled children which is where this project is destined.

Tsvia has successfully recruited a volunteer team to deliver the project and we have worked together to make sure her Local Partners have everything in place to receive the project. Despite raising an impressive $2,500 to date, Tsvia's fundraising campaign has fallen dramatically behind and this isn't something we had budgeted for this year. Please click on the green 'Make a Donation' button on the right hand side of this page, to help us make sure this project can happen.
