Barnabas Fund – November Update 2
Despite the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and her winning a parliamentary seat in April 2012, little has changed for Burma’s Christians. The military continues to pursue its agenda of intimidation, violence, rape and trafficking against ethnic minority groups, many of whom are majority Christian.
Aung San Suu Kyi has been coming under worldwide pressure in relation to the Muslims Rohingya and this has continued to dominate the news from Burma. But in other ethnic minority regions the Burmese military has continued to intimidate and harass pastors and Christian workers, disrupt worship services and destroy churches.
Barnabas Fund assists with projects that help Christians in Burma (Myanmar), including:
- Bible distribution,
- support for orphans,
- widows and refugees,
the construction of churches and Christian schools.
