The Shan Refugee Organization SRO was founded on 4 Jan.2006, to support Shan Refugees in their pursuit of safety in Malaysia. The purpose of the SRO is to assist members of the Shan community group who are suffering as a consequence of their lack of status here in Malaysia.

SRO staffs are all volunteers from within the Shan community. They are advocates for the protection and registration of Shan refugees with the UNHCR and they assist individuals with the registration process. SRO helps refugees to obtain healthcare, to find protection in times of crisis, and networks with the local police, Government, and NGOs to increase awareness of services available to the community. There are currently estimated to be around 4500 Shan in Malaysia. With dedication, hard work and integrity, the EC members of SRO will work hard to protect their members and shed light on the situation of the Shan in Malaysia.

SRO wishes to foster a reputation for helping any member of any ethnic group in any way possible and it encourages it’s members to do the same. SRO encourages its members to have faith in the organization and to strive to make the best of this difficult situation. In order to help its members, SRO tries to connect, inform and mobilize people. The organization is committed to achieving progressive, sustainable development of our community in the scope of human rights.
