မိသားစုများ အတွက် စားဝတ်နေရေး
A Yeik means shade/shelter or oasis in our language Myanmar (also known as Burmese).
How It Works
Families who need food register with us and we get donations from kind people in other countries like you. Our ecommerce partners then deliver the packages nationally ever week or two.
Typical food packages include Rice, Noodles, Tinned Fish, Paracetamol etc
A typical donation is US$75 to US$100 which provides at least ten family packs home delivered to Myanmar families living in share houses, informal housing (DIY) and city and outer urban slums.
About Our Country and People
Myanmar is also the name of our country (formerly known as Burma). We are located between China, India, Thailand, Laos and Bangladesh. Our GDP Per Capita is around 1/50th of most developed nations.
Myanmar is also the name of our people. We have 55 million people in an emerging democracy with 3 billion neighbours. Our people have survived wars (which continue today), cyclones and long term military rule and now we are emerging as a modern nation but we have limited resources.
The recent pandemic has made life particularly difficult with a mid 2020 UN Habitat study showing average household (not individual) incomes were recently reduced by nearly two thirds to around USD$60 per month.
If you are feeling helpless, help someone.– Aung San Suu Kyi
