A massive thank you!
Due to the success of this fundraising campaign, we are hoping to fund a further 10,000 radios to send to Burma. Find out more and donate
A month ago we launched an appeal asking you to help us buy radios for Burma. The initiative is aimed at harnessing the power of radio already being used to break through media censorship in the country.
An amazing 2,327 of you responded to our appeal. Because of your incredible generosity we have surpassed our target and will be able to distribute thousands of radios throughout Burma. Some of you were even able to dig deep enough to buy the more expensive satellite phone and walkie-talkie kits, providing vital communication tools to people on the ground.
If you didn’t get a chance to buy a radio, but would still like to support our work in Burma you can donate now:
A massive thank you is due to everybody that bought a radio for Burma, helped spread the word and supported the appeal. Once the equipment begins to be distributed, we will keep you updated with photo and video reports from inside Burma to show you how these vital tools are benefiting the communities they reach. Getting such footage out of Burma can be difficult, but as soon as we receive anything, those of you that donated will be the first to know.
