Dancing Brings Joy

Myanmar Thursday, 09 May 2024

We are overjoyed to pursue our passion for dancing, and we hope for more opportunities in the future. Your prayers mean the world to us, and we’re thrilled to be doing what we love” said 16-year-old Ngua, also known as ‘dancer’ amongst his peers. He was one of the seven children at our Agape Home in Myanmar who participated in a recent regional dance competition. During the past few months, the children at the home have been pursuing their hobbies by dancing together, an activity that has been a light amidst dark times.

Obed joined our Mercy Home in 2013 where he as surrounded by love and care, he received medical treatment when needed, nutritious food daily and a life-changing education.

“The children under Stand by Me are so blessed. They can go to school without any worries and stresses. They have friends (sponsors) from other country, and they are so happy and proud of it.”

Hope through the unrest

Myanmar Monday, 06 June 2022

Ten kids have recently joined our Stand by Me family in Myanmar. It is a privilege to be able to welcome new children into our care and provide them with a family to look after them. 

These children will now receive the best care and plenty of love. They have been through suffering, but now they have hope for a brighter future.

Food parcels in Myanmar

Myanmar Thursday, 31 March 2022

In February 2021, a military coup spiralled Myanmar into civil unrest, violence and insecurity. Unemployment and food prices rising, coupled with Covid-19, meant millions of people faced starvation. 

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and our incredible staff, we were able to deliver food parcels to 2,654 families facing starvation.

Access to an education, always.

Myanmar, Friday, 03 December 2021

The last year has been exceptionally hard for our children in Myanmar. We believe they all deserve the opportunity to learn. We have purchased tablets to allow them to still have access to education despite the chaos around them. These tablets are a lifeline for our children's education.

Hope in the turmoil

Myanmar, Thursday, 23 September 2021

Since the military took power, our incredible staff have been faithfully looking after our children and serving God through unimaginably difficult circumstances. After hearing how people’s lives have been turned upside down and the desperation many are facing, we believe that our mission to care for children in Myanmar is far from over. We are needed now more than ever.
