On Wednesday we had the opportunity with Alecto Finance to volunteer with Chin Life-Changing Candles and make some candles in support of the Chin community in Myanmar.
Chin Life-Changing Candles are hand-made by the Chin people in Melbourne who have been forced to flee their home country, Myanmar. The candles are sold to provide much-needed funds for the people still living below the poverty line in Chin State (being 80% of the population).
ONE Candle will provide 5kg of rice for a family. TWO Candles will support a child to receive suitable medical treatment. THREE Candles will help a mother to gain maternal health care. FOUR Candles will fund a child to get education for half year.
We are honoured to have had the opportunity to support such a great initiative. For more information on Chin Life-Changing Candles and how to support the initiative please visit: https://chinlifechangingcandles.com.au/
