In Myanmar, fighting between the military forces and armed groups has been ongoing near the border with Thailand, bringing much destruction to the lives of villagers. A temple in the area was hit by bombs on 06 October 2022 and burned completely to ashes. Our contacts tell us that many have either fled to other villages or escaped to the surrounding jungle for safety, where there is no proper shelter and little to eat.
Students from a school dormitory near to the Thai border fled to the jungle and lived in a cave for weeks out of fear of impending attacks. MTI was supporting the school with stationery supplies, and with this new situation, MTI has sent resources including food and soap to the students.
In other parts of Myanmar, our partners continue to distribute supplies of rice and other staple food items to various villages.
Due to food shortages and the security situation, a small pack of rice is given to each family on a weekly basis so that there is enough food for all.
- For the safety of those living in areas where there is fighting. Pray that those who are in hiding now are able to return home soon
- For God’s protection over our local partners who are distributing the relief supplies
- That God will provide for the people despite the challenges of food shortage and security
