Community Partners International's Fundraiser:

Myanmar 9-1-1: Train & Equip Jungle Emergency Medics

THE STORY:

This project will provide training, support and essential supplies to 40 mobile, community-based medics who hike through difficult terrain to deliver lifesaving emergency care to 65,000 people in remote, landmine-infested areas of Eastern Myanmar (Burma). This region remains in the grip of a protracted health crisis after decades of civil war and chronic under-investment in health. In many cases, these mobile emergency medics provide the only access to health services for the poorest and most vulnerable communities.

YOUR IMPACT:

$25 can provide 150 disposable surgical tools for field operations

$100 can provide bandages and gauzes for 20 medic teams for one year

$250 can support one medic to receive advanced trauma training

$1,000 can support the cost of a blood transfusion kit for patients with severe blood loss, malaria or hemorrhaging in childbirth

While recent ceasefires, democratic elections and a new government offer hope of long-term peace in Eastern Myanmar, 450,000 villagers remain displaced in this region, one of the most landmine-contaminated in the world. Ensuring that basic emergency care is available to these remote populations is a significant challenge. Mobile medic teams operated by community-based organizations have demonstrated remarkable success in providing lifesaving health care in low-resource settings.
