New 3 min FBR Video

May 11, 2014 — 10 Comments

I am continually asked what I do in Thailand/ Burma and why.

As most you know, the majority of my work revolves around the mission of Free Burma Rangers.

This is the latest video I put together for FBR. It explains and shows the “why” behind FBR’s mission.  It also gives you a glimpse into the world and people I’ve come to love.

It might be a cliche; but with the power of social media, “sharing is truly caring,” and people need to know about BURMA.  Please do so if you feel so inclined.  You never know what will come of it.

The Free Burma Rangers (FBR) is a multi-ethnic humanitarian service movement. They bring help, hope and love to people in the war zones of Burma. Ethnic pro-democracy groups send teams to FBR to be trained, supplied and sent into the areas under attack to provide emergency medical care, shelter, food, clothing and human rights documentation. The teams also operate a communication and information network inside Burma that provides real time information from areas under attack.

Since 1997, FBR has trained over 110 multi-ethnic relief teams and there are 48 full time teams active in the Karen, Karenni, Shan, Pa’O, Arakan, Kachin, Chin and Lahu areas of Burma. The teams have conducted over 350 humanitarian missions of 1-2 months into the war zones of Burma. On average between 1,000-2,000 patients are treated per mission with 2,000 more people helped in some way. The teams have treated over 360,000 patients and helped over 750,000 people.

    Breaks my heart. Great video, great message–but more importantly, an amazing mission that is being accomplished by FBR.

    Part of me is stuck in limbo–I need to get in touch again and see how I can help.

    Hey Sean! For some reason I have trouble when I try to post comments on people blogs, but I watched your video and wanted to comment. You video is so moving, inspiring, and beautiful. I’m inspired by the way you live life and follow the dreams of your heart. Thank you for sharing and for continuing to fight for justice in an area you believe is making a great impact. The numbers you stated are crazy! And the passion of the people there, I can feel and see the life transformation and empowering that happens there.
