After suffering harsh treatment for many years Chin people have had to flee their homes in search of a better life. Kenshi Candles works with the Chin refugee community in Melbourne to make candles which raise money to supply food and fund projects for people still living below the poverty line in Chin State, Myanmar.
Chin State is located in Western Myanmar. Since 1962, and up until just a few years ago, the country has been in a military coup which has seen the Chin people, who are a Christian minority, discriminated against and forced to live in terrible conditions.
Every candle directly funds 5 kilos of rice for a family living below the poverty line in Chin State, Myanmar.
