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."

The data is in! Supporting mothers really makes a difference.

We are targeting the most vulnerable of an already extremely vulnerable and transient population. Factors such as illiteracy, job insecurity, below legal wages, political insecurity, poor housing, poor community hygiene, and food insecurity contribute to the vulnerability of these families. Our clients are at the lowest end of this population. High-risk mothers in our programs have better birth outcomes than those in the rest of the population in number of infant deaths, maternal death, low birth weight, and premature births.
