H4FA, previously known as Projects to Support Refugees from Burma, does what it says; for the last 20 years backing and seeing through projects from school-building to self-help weaving groups among refugees from Burma. You can read our latest report from January 2017, here.

On this website we highlight the four main projects we support. Additionally H4FA makes generous annual donations to impoverished primary school teachers in Karenni State and sponsorship for individual adult students. We also make one off payments in emergency situations.

In 2015 the name of the charity was changed to Help 4 Forgotten Allies (H4FA).  All references to Projects To Support Refugees From Burma (PSRB) can be taken to mean H4FA.  The aims and supported projects of the charity are unchanged.

 

 

 

Join the charity trustees and eminent supporters at a fundraising gala dinner in aid of a documentary film about the veterans and widows in Burma and our work to support them.

 

For over one year now a dynamic team of film makers has been shadowing the trustees of this charity in an attempt to bring the story of our amazing veterans to the wider world before it is too late. We very much support them in their endeavours but now they need help to finish the project. Your support would be most welcome. We have posted the film company's appeal here on the front page of our website. We do hope you will feel tempted to join us in helping make this important film come to life and to meet the H4FA team.

Be a part of history in the making.

 

In the darkest hours of World War Two, thousands of men from Burma (Myanmar) fought a brutal war to help the Allies win the war in the East.

It was a crucial turning point in world history, one which has been almost completely forgotten today.

For the past two years Grammar Productions has been working flat out on the incredible, untold story of the Forgotten Allies, alongside the brilliant team at Help for Forgotten Allies (H4FA).

We’re working against the clock - the old soldiers are all in their 90s and if we hadn’t captured them on film now these stories may never have been told.

This film has been a labour of love, driven by a sense of a debt to these men that remains unpaid. 

Even though we had no money to make it we pressed ahead. We begged and borrowed whatever we could and the whole production team has worked for free.

After travelling more than 3000 miles into Burma’s most inaccessible corners, crossing crumbling mountain passes and malarial jungles, we've managed to capture the first-hand accounts of more than a dozen veterans of WW2.
 

Now we need your help

 

Sadly, we’ve reached the limits of where passion alone can take us.

Between us and our goal of creating a moving piece of living history for future generations, stands a series of unavoidable post-production expenses which we simply cannot afford. 

After working so hard and getting so close, it would be a final tragedy if these unsung heroes and their stories remained untold.

And that’s where you come in.

Below you'll find 3 ways you can become part of the Forgotten Allies story.

1. Dine
