On Saturday 11th June, our fantastic team of our supporters, volunteers and staff will be taking part in a sponsored walk, 15 miles across London for our Burma Tour – along the route we’ll be hearing about Burmese places of interest in London.
We are walking to raise money for our campaign to end human rights abuses in Burma.
As you read this, there are over 100,000 Rohingya forced to live in squalid camps, driven from their homes and facing desperate conditions. They are unable to leave, unable to work, unable to send their children to school or even to walk on the same roads as other residents in Arakan State.
It’s not just the Rohingya who need our help. The political prisoners still behind bars need our help. Like Lahpai Gam, an ethnic Kachin farmer illegally detained since 2012 and serving a 21-year prison sentence. And in the Shan and Kachin States, the villagers that the Burmese army continues to attack need our help.
We have seen many welcome changes, but there is still so much to do. We must make sure no-one is left behind.
Without your support, our campaign would end.
Do you have any foreign coins or banknotes gathering dust? Why not donate your forgotten currency to Burma Campaign UK?
Burma Campaign UK depends on donations, as we do not receive government funding. Let your forgotten coins and notes make a difference to the people of Burma.
Leftovercurrency.com will then exchange your currency and donate the exchanged amount plus 5% of the value to Burma Campaign UK.
Burma Campaign UK is making a difference, but without support from members of the public our work would end.
