Our Organization

Love for Myanmar operates with a staff in the United States and a staff in Myanmar. A Board of concerned and passionate people give the work stability and wisdom. Groups of volunteers help with the Burmese work in America (mainly through the Austin Karen Baptist Church) and the work in Myanmar (chiefly through mission trips and training events.)
