Muslim Salvation Organization of Burma (MSOB)
P.O. Box 70, Chiang Mai 50000 Thailand
Phone: (053) 308768
Fax: (66 53) 308768
Focus: There are over 6 million people of Muslim background in Burma. About 20% inhabited in Arakan Division bordering with Bangladesh. Part of the Muslims in Arakan Division is called Rohingya Muslims, and they have been persecuted in mass during the past 2 decades. These Rohingya Muslim Refugees are welknown and helped by international Muslim Relief Organizations.
Since early 1980's the military gvernments of Burma have started persecution on Muslims in other parts of Burma. Many Muslim villages in Karen State, Mon State and Tanassarim Division were burnt down, people were torture, killed and Muslim girls were raped. Masajids and Madarasas were destroyed. Gambling casino online everywhere. Thousands of Muslims fled to Thai border in the Karen insurgent stronghold areas. As the Karen insurgent strongholds have been occupied by the government troops in recent years, these Muslims again fled to Thailand and become refugees. There are about 30,000 to 50,000 Musli refugees in 28 Refugee Camps. Due to lack of funds MSOB could visit 2 Camps and obtained the population data and inspected their needs. They are depending on Christian Missions for their food, shelter and clothes.
There are still many shortages n Islamic facilities such as Holy Quran and Islamic Books to teach the children, materials for prayer centers and mosques, electricity at the mosques, water supplies, etc. which the non-Muslim organizations cannot provide. Hitherto no outside Islamic organizations has given attention to help these Burmese Muslim refugees yet. MSOB is a newly formed organization to coordinate the international Islamic organizations to fulfil these needs. Please join your hand with us in the way of Allah by granting your Zakah and Sadaqah to these distressed Muslims. Allah will bless you.
