Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The most commonly asked questions with answers are written below for your convenience. You will most probably find the answer that you're looking for.  If you don't find the answer that you're looking for, please feel free to contact us.

Where is my money going to go?

Donations will be collected from individuals and businesses and then, the money will be sent to our recipients in Myanmar.

Our major recipient in Myanmar is Pastor David who is the founder of the Myanmar Institute of Mission and Research (MIMR).  Pastor David has two campuses in Myanmar; the largest campus is on the outskirts of Yangon and the smaller campus is in a town called Gangaw.

Pastor David will spend the donated money on better quality food, clean water, medicine, clothing, educational materials and reliable power to benefit the orphanage workers and the 175+ children in their care.

If funds remain, the senior pastor can allocate those funds towards building maintenance projects and agricultural projects.

What if I want to donate tangible items?

Due to the ongoing corona virus (Covid-19) crisis in the world, we will not be able to send your tangible items overseas at this time.

We are constantly monitoring changes in conditions and travel-related laws.

As soon as things change for the better, we will update this section so please come back and check the information on this page again.

Yes, of course you can!  Normally there is another group of Australian missionaries who visit boarding schools, churches and orphanages in Myanmar every 2 months.In the past, refurbished second-hand laptops have been delivered to the Yangon campus.

Sometimes we receive useful items for kids such as clothing, crayons and coloured pencils; all of which can be taken to Myanmar by the next group of missionaries.

There is no need to spend your money on international couriers.  Please go to the contact us page and let us know what you're sending and we'll take it from there.  In most cases, you'll only have to pay for the postage to Brisbane!

What if I want to send books?

Picture books are generally ok to send to Myanmar.  Unfortunately English is not widely spoken and therefore, it's not a good idea to send books/literature written in fluent English because the kids might not be able to read it without an interpreter.

In Myanmar not only do they have their own ancient alphabet but also; they have their own ancient numeric system.  So please reconsider sending items which feature many western numbers such as times tables for maths.

Can I get a tax rebate?

Yes, you can.

The Mission2Myanmar is a Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) which has been endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR).

If you donate $2 or more to the Mission2Myanmar, we will send you a tax receipt and then you can claim a tax deduction at the end of the financial year.
