Burma Children Medical Fund

BCMF facilitates the treatment of children (under 18) with serious medical conditions who need to be referred to medical facilities in Chiang Mai (or Bangkok).

Burma Adult Medical Fund

BAMF was established to facilitate the treatment of special adult cases (over 18) that will respond well to surgery or treatment.

Burma Women Medical Fund

BWMF aims to fund the surgical and support costs involved in common gynecological conditions which can be corrected at a relatively low cost at the local Thai hospital in Mae Sot.

The Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) was established in 2006 in response to the increasing number of children on the Thai-Burma border who required complex medical treatment and surgery that is not available at local clinics or hospitals. Prior to BCMF being established, children who required surgery had their symptoms treated and lived either severely incapacitated lives or died prematurely as a result.

In addition to funding patients’ medical treatment and providing support services, BCMF also provides patients with food and accommodation for as long as they are undergoing treatment.Through the use of the online fundraising site youcaring.com, BCMF is current campaigning to help raise $5,000 in funds for our new patient safe house in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The Patient Safe House will be a safe place where patients and their caregivers can stay while undergoing medical treatment. Help BCMF give children and adults with serious medical conditions a chance at a healthy life by donating to our campaign to help raise funds for the Patient Safe House in Chiang Mai.

Conditions we treat

Through our donors BCMF, BAMF and BWMF programs are able to acquire treatment for a variety of conditions. These fall under 12 categories including Cardiac Disease, Blood Disorder, and Congenital Musculoskeletal Deformities.

Staff and Volunteers

The small, yet efficient, BCMF staff team is made up of a small group of core staff land volunteers in Chiang Mai and Mae Sot, Thailand. A few individuals also donate their time and expertise to assist BCMF with a variety of key program tasks.

Success stories

Successful medical intervention for children and adults benefits not only the patients, but also the entire community. Restoring our patients’ health represents a tangible development achievement in line with our donor’s objectives of saving lives and promoting opportunity for all.

Fundraising

Because of the generosity of our donor organizations and individual supporters, BCMF is able to provide healthcare for seriously ill children and adults. 100% of individual donations go directly toward patient costs.
