Eyes to Burma is a very small non-profit organization with board members and administrative staff located in Ashland, Oregon. All staff members are unpaid volunteers. Daily assistance to the refugees at the Mae Sot dump is provided by Fred Stockwell, who lives in Mae Sot full time. Fred also works to join volunteers and donors with the people in need.
Fred worked as a photographer for many years. His work can be viewed at www.stockwellphotos.com.
All donations, whether money or supplies, go directly to help the individuals and families living in the dump.
Burma, also known as Myanmar, is run by a military government. Thousands of people have fled Burma because of the mistreatment and threats they receive. This site is not political, but you can read more at news websites. To get started, here’s the link to Wikipedia’s entry about the Karen people of Burma living illegally in Thailand at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karen_people.
