The mission of Free burma rangers is to free the oppressed, to help victims of attacks, to defend the people, and to spread news.
Free Burma Rangers (FBR) is a multicultural, humanitarian movement that brings help, hope and love to people in conflict zones in Burma, Iraq and Sudan. The FBR works in collaboration with local groups in favor of democracy. It trains, supplies and coordinates the Ranger teams, so that they provide medical assistance, shelter, food, clothing and human rights information.
“When we go to these places, whether in Kurdistan, Burma, Sudan or other places, I have these three prayers at heart. First, that the attackers stop doing harm. Second, that all people be released. Third, that the heart of the attackers be transformed into a loving heart, a heart that desires to follow Jesus because we were all created in the image of God. "
The Free Burma Rangers was established in 1997, during the Burma Army offensives in which several villages were destroyed, people killed and more than 100 people fled their homes. To date, over a million people are still displaced in Burma. The RBF was therefore created with the idea that no one will be able to prevent each other from helping each other in love.
Since 1997, the FBR has trained more than 250 rescue teams. 71 teams work full time in different regions of Burma, namely Arakan, Chin, Kachin, Karen, Karenni, Kayan, Lahu, Mon, Naga, Pa-Oh, Shan and Ta'ang. The teams carried out more than 800 humanitarian missions lasting one to two months in the war zones of Burma. On average per mission, we treat 1 patients and help 000 other people. The teams treated at least 2 patients and helped more than 000 people.
