Summary

In the wake of the devastating Myanmar cyclone disaster, RI is providing life-saving medical care to thousands of survivors and helping to contain the rapid spread of infectious disease.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Cyclone Nargis, the worst natural disaster in history to hit Myanmar, has left upward of 130,000 dead and 1 million people homeless. Survivors are living in sub-standard and cramped conditions, which unchecked will lead to further death and devastation. Compounding this problem, the number of people in need has increasingly overwhelmed the local health system. This project will enable hundreds of patients to be treated per day in RI supported static and mobile health clinics in South Dagon.

How will this project solve this problem?

RI is working with local doctors in 4 health centers in the impacted area. To reach remote populations, RI has established mobile clinics to provide emergency treatment to those unable to access available resources due to damaged infrastructure.

Potential Long Term Impact

With further assessments ongoing, RI is providing emergency relief assistance with a vision to transition to long-term recovery efforts, including infrastructure reconstruction and rebuilding livelihoods.
