Local grant aids Burmese

The Woodbridge branch of the Burma Humanitarian Mission helps to support backpack medics in eastern Burma and the Ronald McDonald House Charities recently offered a grant allowing the group to support 10 teams and 14,000 children in Burma.

The $41,000 grant for the Backpack Medics program will help medics trained with basic medicine to bring basic healthcare to ethnic minorities, who are not covered by the Burmese government.

According to Michael Isherwood, chair of the Board for Burma Humanitarian Mission of Woodbridge, more than 1.4 million doses of livesaving medication will be provided this year.
