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:  Supply water purification/filtration solution for the village clinic.

.

PROJECT DATE: December, 2014

.

ORIGINAL DISASTER: Water source for the village compromised by Cyclone Nargis, 2008.

.

In April of 2008, the most powerful cyclone on record, plowed into the delta region of Myanmar (Burma), killing 300,000 and displacing almost a million people. The accompanying storm-surge destroyed rice paddies, wells, and reservoirs.

.

 

.

The low-lying village of Ah Lett Chaung, across the river from Yangon, had been without a source of clean drinking water since the storm.

.

.

 

 

Even the clinic was without a source of purified water.

.

 

MicroAid provided the clinic with water purification/filtration systems.

.

 

 

 

 

Thanks to MicroAid, the clinic will now have clean water for the staff and patients.  But they will also demonstrate the filters to the families in the village.  If we think they will really use them, MicroAid can donate additional filters to individual households.

.

 

I appreciate your support.  We really are making a difference in peoples lives—directly and efficiently.

.

All the best,

.

Jon
