No More Poverty Provides Support to Charities Serving Impoverished Children in Southeast Asia

Share Article

Dr. Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi, co-founders of No More Poverty, lend their support to the international charities Global Family and New Eden Charity Foundation.

No More Poverty and its co-founders Dr. Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi are new supporters of two charities working together to provide safe housing and education to the needy children of Southeast Asia. Global Family collaborates with international charity partners to preserve the family and rescue desperate children with the assistance of local community organizations, volunteer caregivers, and child sponsors. Global Family identifies the neediest children, works with established community organizations and trains the volunteers. They believe in family care rather than institutional. The vision of the organization is to help as many children as possible who are victims of poverty, exploitation, and abuse using principled methods that represent the best possible outcome. Its partner, New Eden Charity Foundation, is focused on meeting the educational needs of the suffering children in the war-torn country of Myanmar.

“We all know that the ravages of extreme poverty and political conflict have the greatest impact on the children. Many are alone and vulnerable because they are orphaned and many are simply abandoned by broken families who can no longer care for them,” says Dr. Michael Omidi co-founder of No More Poverty. “The benevolent care extended by organizations such as New Eden Charity and Global Family is sorely needed. We at No More Poverty are glad to help further the vital missions and compassionate work of these organizations.”

New Eden Charity is working to help the suffering people of Myanmar. Thousands of children have no education and do not attend school due to poverty and war, especially in villages. In many areas there are no schools where children can learn Burmese (the official language, there are more than 100 languages in Myanmar) and basic English. Instead, they are forced into labor and many children and young girls are trafficked into other neighboring countries. “It makes me very sad whenever I think about it and I foresee the future of these orphans who are extremely poor  in Myanmar; young girls who do not go to school and are under sex slavery due to poverty.. This is the reason why our work at New Eden Charity Foundation was started in 2005,” says Chan Thawng, Executive Director, New Eden Charity Foundation, Myanmar (Burma). The mission of New Eden Charity is to help as many suffering children as possible, and to build schools in villages so that children will have a chance to learn.

Global Family (http://www.myglobalfamily.org) is a non-profit organization that endeavors to rescue and care for abused, oppressed, and abandoned children within the context of family. Jennifer and Clark Jensen founded Global Family as an international advocacy group to rescue desperate children with the assistance of local community organizations, volunteer caregivers, and child sponsors.

The New Eden Charity Foundation operates in partnership with Global Family. Its focus is providing educational opportunities to the children of Myanmar, one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia. Myanmar is a military state and the country has been divided by war for decades, leaving its people in dire poverty. Children are the most vulnerable in these situations, often separated from their families, they become forced labor or are trafficked into neighboring countries. New Eden’s mission is to help these suffering children and to meet their educational needs, preparing them for successful, self-sufficient lives.

No More Poverty (http://www.nmp.org) is a not-for-profit charity organization (with a pending 501(c)3 application) founded by brothers Dr. Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi. The organization seeks to end poverty at home and abroad by supporting the efforts of like-minded charities and agencies. Current efforts are focused on increasing awareness of and donations to charities already doing great work to address poverty and its staggering effects throughout the world. The plan is to expand our activities to include fostering business development and job creation in disenfranchised areas.
