Mingalaba! Welcome to the ammado page of Friends of the Children Myanmar (FCM). FCM is an organisation working to improve the welfare of Myanmar’s children in institutions including orphanages, monasteries, and hospital children’s wards.
FCM aims to:
• Support local university volunteers in their visits and donations of food, stationary, mosquito nets and other necessities to children centres in Yangon;
• Support local child carers with training and income-generation projects;
• Offer children in orphanages opportunities beyond mainstream schooling.
FCM is a non-political, non-religious organisation that only supports children’s centres where we know the staff are dedicated and the money is used for the direct benefit of the children. FCM has no paid staff and is run by its UK-based committee who pay for their own expenses and any overheads. This way, any donations you make will go directly to supporting our Burmese university volunteers and childcare projects in Myanmar.
