Update on the Myanmar Longhouse Fundraiser

As of October 13th we have raised $6135 towards the Myanmar Longhouse Project. Special thanks to the Ladies of the Faith Sewing group. Their Blanket Sale contributed $1425 in support of this project. Sincere thanks also to everyone else who has contributed to this very worthwhile project.

The cutoff date for this project will be November 15th. Dare we hope that we could raise the full amount of $9810 for the building of one longhouse by that date?

Myanmar Longhouse Fundraising Project

August 24, 2021 – Update

As mentioned in a previous post, we are participating in a project to raise funds to help build longhouses for refugees in Myanmar. Trinity Lutheran Church Hamilton and Christ Latvian Lutheran Church Hamilton are also fundraising for this project.

The attached photo shows the various components needed to build one longhouse, along with the cost of each component. The white oval on the ladder shows the $1275.00 that we at Faith have donated to the project as of August 22, 2021. The project will run until the end of 2021. Let’s see if we can raise enough to build at least one longhouse!

Refugees in Myanmar are facing political violence, oppression, and tyranny. Innocent people are fleeing from their homes and living as internal refugees in their own country. They need our compassion NOW. CLWR’s goal is to build 29 longhouses to shelter these refugees. The cost for one longhouse is $9810.
