MicroAid Provides Water Purification Systems for the Ah Lett Chaung Village Clinic — 2014
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.
The filters will also be introduced at the household level and, if accepted, we will distribute more to the individual families.
