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.
