Students assist refugees fleeing violence in Burma

posted 9 Nov 2010, 03:37 by Sarah Webber   [ updated 12 Nov 2010, 14:47 ]

The Build Project's students are joining in the effort to assist refugees fleeing the latest wave of violence in Burma.

In the wake of the recent elections in Burma, fighting between the regime and ethic rebels is forcing thousands of refugees over the border into Thailand. Our students have been helping to distribute food and vital assistance to people flooding into the Thai border town of Mae Sot.

Students are showing great commitment to helping out in every way that they can, and are putting into practice the leadership and project skills they have been developing. Many of our students are still trying to track down their own relatives.

We urge you not to forget about the people of Burma, refugees, students and aid workers at this very uncertain time.

Eat Pray Love starring Julia Roberts is based on the bestselling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert.

The film explores the journey of Elizabeth Gilbert (Julia Roberts) who has everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having – a husband, a house, a successful career – yet like so many others, she found herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wanted in life.
After embarking on a journey around the world, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali.
