Donation of Telephone Cards to Remote Villages

MYanmar is blessed with natural energy resources like gas, oil and water, yet only 30%of its people has the benefit of electricity supply.  Especially, in the areas of battle fields of armed crashes that lasted over 60 years, almost all kinds of infrastructures are definitely insufficient.

BHN has been supplying solar gnerated electricity for many public facilities in Kayin (Karen) state and, where requested and radio wave is available,also installed radio telephone sets powered by the solar systems.

In the 7 small and remotely located villages that have no access to doctors(nor access to the national grid services) located in the traveling area of Shan Ywar Thit Hospital, BHN installed special radio telephone sets.  Radio telephone wave was very feeble in those villages and we built large antennas on tall polls , thus enabling villagers to contact with the hospital at any time whenever help from the doctors were necessary.

However, many of the villagers have still no or minimal access to currency economy and it is difficult for many of them to pay the phone charges sustainably.  In such moment, XMobile co., a virtual mobile service provider, offered us to donate some part of its sales to help those people in need of access to telephone services.

With the funds donated from XMobile BHN purchased pre-paid telephone cards and presented them to each of the fillages and schools where BHN installed telephone systems.

Solar power systems for a hospital & high schools

Hpa Pun hospital
Hpa Pun hospital

Recently we have completed solar power system installation works in the District Hopital of Hpa Pun, the high school of Naung Ta Pwe and the high school of An Kaun.

The hospital of Hpa Pun is a big district hospital with 100 beds and was equiped with a small gasoline generator, however, the running cost for the generator is high and the power was not enought for all the facilities and it was seldom used.

In An Kaun high school, the school space  was too little to place batteries and often suffering from floods.    So, the parents of the students voluntarily worked to build a hut with a high floor to protect battery systems.

During this rainy season Myanmar suffered from a gigantic floods that caused big damages in many districts and our next work will be able to start from next November, which is also after the genral election of the country.

New Installation of Solar Power Systems continue

As the rainy season is starting in Myanmar we are accelerating our solar power installation works.   The construction of roads and bridges are going on at surprising speed in the Karen State, there still are many rivers without bridges and ,when the river is wide and deep, we have to use boat to carry equipment & materials.

After the completion of the solar systems ,their ownerships are transfered to the owner of the premises(school or hospital).    As the maintenance work is quite important for the longer life of the systems, as well as to save the cost for maintenance.    Hence ,we are conducting maintenance training, choosing people to take responsibility for the maintenance works.

Currently we are working to install solar power systems to the District Hospital with 100 beds in the township of Hpa Pun, which is expected to be finished by the middle of July.
