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.
