Good News from Myanmar

. I just got word from our partner in Myanmar that a small project that MicroAid initiated—to deliver water filters to a clinic in a village that was affected by Cyclone Nargis—has been completed. . It was a small gesture of humanitarian aid that we could accomplish in an otherwise difficult work environment. Usually, I don’t leave the field until a project is complete, but in this case, because of my visa, I could not stay any longer, and I knew that our local partner would finish the project within a few weeks. . . . . BENEFICIARY: Ah Lett Chaung Village Clinic (serving 75 patients per week) . LOCATION: Ah Lett Chaung Village (one hour from Yangon, Ayeyarwaddy Division, Myanmar) . PROJECT:

Myanmar (Burma) Update

I am back from the assessment trip in Myanmar (Burma)—re. Cyclone Nargis, 2008—just in time to wish everyone a Happy New Year. . . As your representative in the field, I work hard to identify survivors who are still in need years after the disaster It is my job to find people who would not be helped otherwise and not to duplicate the efforts of other organizations—that’s the MicroAid way. We don’t want to use our funds to do something that would be done anyway. Our beneficiaries have no other recourse. . . Since your donations are only spent on projects—overhead is covered by me, the board of directors, and select foundation grants—those resources are only used when I think they can help
