BMALINX Inc originated following the arrival of a small group of ethnic Chin from the remote area of Chin State Burma in 2002. They arrived in Australia as refugees from Malaysia under Australia's Refugee Humanitarian Programme. When their presence became known to us, three men from the WBC (Westgate Baptist Community) went to Malaysia on a fact finding visit. Having seen firsthand the huge number of asylum seekers and refugees from Burma living in Malaysia and being resettled to Australia, regular visits began in 2005 to Malaysia. As communication between Burma, particularly Chin State and the outside world at that stage was near impossible, regular visits were undertaken from Australia to Malaysia and on to Burma. The purpose of those visits was to pass news, written and verbal, photos and funds from one place to another and back again. Linking families and friends with each other who otherwise were unable to have any meaningful communication with each other was the catalyst for establishing BMA LINX Inc. thus creating a Not-for-profit avenue for funds and communication. BMA LINX has now come of age with interested parties wanting to support the Chin communities in Australia, Burma and Malaysia.
We are a group of volunteers, passionate about linking and supporting communities in Burma, Malaysia and Australia and making life better for those who desperatly need it. We are a not-for-profit organisation, so you can be assured that 100% of your donations go straight to the communities we work in.
We work with communities in Burma, Malaysia and Australia to create a better life for those in the community. We help support people in communities that need it most, providing Education, Clean Water and a far more promising future.
We also support those looking to start a new life in Australia. Supporting them when they arrive, by providing the necessities while they get established. We help them set up their new lives and settle in to their new community!
