A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT METTA CHARITY
Bringing happiness, education and health to the Thai-Burma border
Metta Charity was founded to help the 1000’s of Burmese children of migrant workers who come to Thailand to get work. The migrant workers are poor and seek employment in Thailand farms and factories, and often have no resources or family to mind their children while they work. This means the Children come with the parents and often work along side of them in rice fields or factory floors.
Metta Charity does…..
- Houses Burmese Migrant Workers Children
- Provides Schools and Education
- Supplies food and water
- Provides medical treatment
- Uniforms and Clothes
- Assists with Passport and Visas for undocumented children
- Provides English lessons to break the poverty cycle
Since 2011, Johny Adhikari and few volunteers have been devoted to improving the Mae Sot District near the Thai-Burma border by providing education, medical care and a sense of community to an under-served migrant population.
Burma’s (Myanmar) long history of civil war has displaced nearly 500,000 of their citizens. Many Burmese people move across the border into Northern Thailand to leave behind a conflict that has continued since 1948.
These migrants live in Thailand’s rural areas in conditions of chronic poverty. Through the three small campuses Johny has established south of Chiang Mai, we provide basic medical care and education to over 400 children and their parents.
Volunteers are not compensated for their time. Please take a look at our projects to learn how you can make a difference.
