Please help get us to Asia to work with Partners Relief & Development.

Partners is an international charity that works with the people of Myanmar/Burma, where decades of war and oppression have caused enormous damage.

Every day Partners works with communities affected by conflict, to meet children's basic needs, prevent them being trafficked or exploited, and care for them in crisis situations.

Matt is a doctor who will be working as a Clinical Advisor, overseeing existing projects and planning new ones to bring free, full lives to children affected by conflict and oppression.

Thalia is a writer and blogger who will be at home with their two children, and working part-time with Partners, telling the stories of the people of Myanmar to the world.

Check out the video on this page to see an example of some of the medical work Partners does right now, and head to for much more.

Thalia Kehoe Rowden's involvement (page creator)

Matt and Thalia are relocating their family to Chiang Mai, Thailand, so they can work with Partners Relief & Development, to make a difference to poor and oppressed people in and from Myanmar/Burma.

If you, like us, have sometimes looked from afar at the situation in Myanmar and wished you could do something about it, you can join our team and help get us to Asia to work on your behalf.

Matt and Thalia have skills that Partners can use to make life better for the people of Myanmar. Please help us get there.

Partners is a charity and doesn’t pay its foreign staff in Thailand. Instead, people like us raise financial (and moral!) support for our work there from people like you who believe the work’s important.

This Givealittle fundraiser is to help with the practical, one-off costs of moving and setting up a household in Asia, including buying a car that can handle the roads there.

The funds will all be administered by Partners, a registered charity, with full transparency and accountability. Donations are tax-deductible.

We are also looking for long-term team members to provide ongoing financial support. If you'd like to be involved in that way, please email Thalia: thalia.kehoerowden [at] . Thanks so much!
