$20 / month can make or break a family

In the migrant camps and villages on the Thai/Burma border, families are living so closely with hunger and poverty that they are on the verge of being torn apart by it.

This is how children end up abandoned at children’s homes, at temples, or sent to stay with distant relatives far away from their parents.

When the family can’t make ends meet, these are the choices they have left.

We are living and working with families in this crisis. We are helping them to support each other, working together to create employment opportunities, and partnering with them in creating their own businesses.

We provide training such as basic family finance, basic healthcare and nutrition, and early childhood education.

Initially this project began as a way to create family style care for abandoned children, but as we have worked we have found that an even greater need is to reach out to families who are at risk of disintegration, and support the whole family instead, maintaining the child’s original family, rather than creating a new, artificial one.

Meet Ma Phyo – Program Graduate

Ma Phyo no longer receives nutrition support from The Charis Project. This is because she is now stronger physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially and ready to step forward to a better future for her children and family. "I always pray for you. And I want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I’m very happy because of your help. Every night I pray, I pray for you, for the people who have helped my family."
