About MDA

Myanmar Development Aid e.V. (MDA) is a non-profit-making charitable association based in Hamburg. Founded in 2008 it pursues the goal to support children in need in Myanmar – independently of politics or religious matters.
Together with our partners in Myanmar, we have built two orphanages in Thanlyin, south-east of Yangon, the economic center of the country. They bear a telling name: Myitar Yaung Chi – Ray of love. House Elisabeth gives home to currently 82 boys aged between 7 to 17 years and House Teresa to 59 girls aged between 6 and 16 years.
At MDA we are all volunteering. Administration is lean but efficient to ensure that all donations are being used 100% for the children.

The board

Our group consists of members, all of whom have been conducting humanitarian work in Myanmar for many years.
