Unrest in Myanmar: Our Response

The current situation in Myanmar is very personal to the Venture community. Watch this video for an update from Venture President, Ryan Skoog, on the recent events in Myanmar and our response as a community.

Venture's Story in Myanmar

Decades of Commitment

In 1998, Melody (“Ma Skoog” - one of Venture’s founding spiritual voices), began teaching at a Bible school in Yangon, Myanmar. The students of this school became the first of a network of partners that would help Venture deliver aid to the furthest corners of a country ravaged by the longest running civil war in modern history.

Network of Local Partners

Along the way, Venture has continually invested in relationships with local business people and local leaders. Through this network of local partners, we have been able to reach vulnerable people that other foreign aid organizations cannot, and have delivered over 34 million meals in this region over the years.

Current Challenges

Road closures, internet shutdowns, military checkpoints, and violent skirmishes all over the country have made the work we do significantly more challenging. Many of our existing transport routes are no longer usable, so our staff and partners have been finding alternative routes and methods of getting food to the vulnerable. We never cease to be amazed by their ingenuity and commitment in these efforts.

How You Can Help

More and more people are being displaced by the violence and there is less and less opportunity for the vulnerable to provide for themselves. As the situation is becoming dire and the needs are increasing, your generosity in giving and in prayer will enable us to provide food and a sense of security to those displaced by the conflict.
