Through our local Burmese partners, Reload Love has sponsored children’s programs, provided clothing, and built playgrounds. Below, you’ll see a brief visual representation of our time spent for and among the people we seek to serve.
December Burma Trip
A Brief History:
Since 1948, in what has been considered the world’s longest running war, the Karen and other ethnic people groups of Myanmar (perhaps more recognizably knows as Burma) have been oppressed and persecuted by multiple governments, including a brutal military regime that held power from 1962-2011.
Under this military rule, ethnic cleansing and military action, including murder, rape, and the burning of villages, claimed the lives of an estimated 500,000 people.
Today, even after the country’s first democratic election in 2015, the military continues to threaten innocent people throughout the nation.
