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.

Please visit the What's On page to find a project that you would like to support.

If you are not too fussed about selecting a project, we can put your general donations towards better quality food, clean water, medicine, clothing, educational materials, building maintenance and agricultural projects.

Please be advised that from the 1st of January 2022, 10% from every general donation will be redirected to the Mission2Myanmar's operational budget.  This will ensure that the Mission2Myanmar (M2M) will have enough money to meet its operational expenses and will also have some money leftover for printed promotional materials.

How do I know if my money has been spent appropriately?

We collect monthly expense reports from our recipients with supporting evidence.  Then after that, we carefully scrutinise those reports to ensure that the donated funds have been spent appropriately.  Financial members of M2M may request copies of the expense reports.

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 okay 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 mathematics.

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.
