Kevin and Julia Garrat and their Nation to Nation team are our Hope International partners in Myanmar.

Here’s a message from Kevin and Julia:

“Our Nation to Nation team focuses  on vulnerable conflict-distressed communities in Myanmar. Nation to Nation offers a powerful Christian hope message along with vocational training & replicable, sustainable ‘seed to market’ solutions with coffee, soy, and clean water systems, they partner with nationals to make a lasting difference.

Our 30 years in community development work in China ended in 2014 with abduction and false imprisonment. Pawns in a Canada/China geopolitical dispute, the 775-day ordeal as hostages & Chinese prison is recounted their captivating story of resilience and hope called Two Tears on the Window.”

Nation to Nation provides LIFEPACS – backpacks with water bottles, hygiene kits and school supplies to village children.  Our goal is to provide 2,000 LIFEPACS in 2020.  Cost is $30 US per LIFEPAC.

web milk

Nation to Nation cares about giving Burmese migrant children a healthy start. We deliver warm, organic soya milk to migrant children’s hostels. A gift of $850 provides three months of fresh soya milk to children struggling to get the nutrition they need.
