WATER: NOWADAYS PRECIOUS MORE THAN EVER

The project for water and sanitation in Yang Kha and Yaung Nan villages, Kyaing Tung's township, is not stopping, and they shouldn't stop because nowadays this kind of projects are showing their crucial role

"We've always worked in rural areas to grant access to water to all population, during last years we built more than 50 hydric systems. Nowadays the crisis we're all living asks us to underline another value of this kind of projects: sanitation and hygienic prevention." said by Livio Maggi, our country director in Myanmar.

"The area we're working in is now isolated and it is under special surveillance because of lots of workers coming back from Thailan. Water, naturally, is crucial to grant hygiene in order to prevent any disease or infection. Never as in this moment, where governments are aksing for a constant hygiene, this has been so evident." 

Works to build the structures are keeping on going, despite of lockdown, thanks to the dedication and help of villagers themselves.

MYANMAR: SUPPORT DURING LOCKDOWN

As in many other countries, also in Myanmar the lockdown has started already since some week. Also here schools have been first to close, followed by different centers and agencies. Also villages locked down, roads are closed and people aren't allowed to go out.

Until now the lock down is established until the mid May. 

We are really concerned about the impact that this will have on economic conditions of families who already live in poverty. "Here many people work on a daily labour and they don't have savings. - as told by Livio Maggi, our country director - and there are no social help or layoff. Many families are contacting us asking for help because they are starving." 

So, we started up an aid program for families in need through the provision of basic goods. In Yangon we are supporting what local authorities are already doing. In villages we are in constant touch with families and we are organizing collection points at villages gates, in order to safely distribute our basic goods.

We also intensifed the support to the juvenile centre and to other centers for children with disabilities, with provision of medicines and basic goods.

PASSION AND LOVE CAN TRULY IMPROVE LIFE CONDITIONS

Here the story of Ma Hlaing, our Community Based Rehabilitator since 2005, at the service of children with disabilities and their families in villages around Taunggyi.

With her love and dedication to children with disabilities she managed to make communities and families to overcome their prejudice of disability as a punishment of God. They had the chance to understand that children could really be integrated in society and in communities, and how to develop their potential abilities. As she said: It is my passion to help those children whom are the most disadvantaged and neediest in the community. I love my children and I feel happy working with them. Thanks dear Ma Hlaing for your witnessing, it is true that passion and love are the key to improve life conditions!

COVID-19: EMERGENCY RESPONSE IN INDIA

Sadly, official cases of Coronavirus and deaths in India have increased exponentially during last week, after the lockdown declared last 25th of March by Prime Minister Modi, when cases were only 519. At 7th of April there are 4.911 confirmed cases and 137 deaths. Jaipur, where our Navchetan project for children with disabilities takes place, is one of the most affected cities. The lockdown is declared until 14th of April, but people living in urban slum areas, where most of them have just daily wages for work, have nothing to eat and the situation is dramatic, as witnessed by pictures published on many sites of thousands people walking from cities to rural villages in order to avoid starvation due to the lockdown.

Our local staff managed to start reacting even before this because of the immediate response of local community to prevent starvation of our beneficiaries.

This is a beautiful witnessing on how solidarity could start in unexpected ways and in unexpected moments.
