During the water-shortage crisis in Myanmar, the Moegyo team donated 500,000 Ks to the Searchers-Myanmar team to distribute plastic buckets that can store 20 gallons of rain water. 14 Volunteers from the Searchers-Myanmar team visited the following three villages in the Waw area in Bago Division:
(a) Kan Myint (East and West)
(b) Shan Su
(c) Mayl Zale Kone
According to the Searchers-Myanmar team, some areas are still reporting water shortage even when the rain has started. The Moegyo team will continue to monitor the reports and will partner with volunteers and the able groups such as Searchers-Myanmar to provide assistance and funds as needed.
As you know, the Moegyo was founded during the initial days of Cyclone Nargis in May 2008 where Moegyo volunteers provided support to victims delivering medicine, food and supplies and participated in the various rebuilding projects in the Nargis area. Currently, we are focusing on assisting the orphanages in Myanmar and sponsoring various projects needed by the orphanages.
Please find attached file on the projects and activities sponsored since Nargis:
