Grace Haven, Myanmar
Transforming impoverished communities by caring for over 700 orphans and students in 23 schools and equipping 113 churches
Over many decades, Myanmar has been inflicted with internal wars, drugs and poverty. After imposed isolation, this predominantly Buddhist and military-ruled country is opening its doors to the world.
In 1991 Rev Cha, together with his wife Susan, had a burden to the street children of Lashio, Myanmar. With 40 children in their house, Rev Cha was encouraged by Rev Paul Chang (CNEC Singapore) to start the Grace Haven orphanage.
Amongst the wide-ranging ministries, there are now 20 Grace Haven homes for children and students established throughout Myanmar, more than 50 thriving churches, 126 workers and over 120 pastors in training. WorldShare has been involved with Grace Haven, together with CNEC Singapore from the beginning.

Transforming lives in Myanmar
The Republic of the Union of Myanmar, commonly shortened to Myanmar and also known as Burma, is bordered by China, Thailand, India, Laos and Bangladesh. Its population of more than 60 million makes it the world's 24th most populous country. It is the world's 40th largest country and the second largest in Southeast Asia. Myanmar has been inflicted with internal wars, drugs and poverty over many years. As a result, there are many orphans, widows, poor and sick in hurting communities. After decades of imposed isolation, this predominantly Buddhist and military-ruled country is steadily opening its doors to the world.
