The Chin Human Rights Organisation (CHRO) is a non-governmental, non-profit advocacy organisation legally registered in Canada.

  2. Making relevant reports about the situation depending on how important the need to response
  3. Human rights education to the people of China in Burma (see website for further information)

In terms of refugee work:

  1. Refugee protection (advocacy works for the local and central government to stop deportation in Mizoram, India)
  2. Providing humanitarian assistance to the vulnerable refugee families in India and Malaysia
  3. Providing financial assistance to the refugee children education
