EHS has a long history of cooperation with the Myanmar Institute of Theology (MIT) in Yangon, that is now situated in a country and city that is in a state of crisis as a result of the military coup in January.
The school is closed and teachers and students are partaking in the protests against the anti-democratic forces that have taken power in the country. All normal, everyday life is put on hold and students at MIT describe the protest movement as a last chance at a democratically governed Myanmar. The military puts up a strong resistance and many deaths, injuries and arrests have taken place. To cope with this extreme situation, students at MIT are now asking us for financial help. The money will go to what is needed to survive now that schools have closed and basically no one is working.
Do you want to help? Swish any amount to 1231003532 and mark the payment with “MIT”. The number goes to Enskilda Högskolan Stockholm who will transfer the money to where its needed.
