Challenge

IDE Myanmar has operations in practically all of the cyclone-affected areas in the Irrawaddy Delta, and is hence positioned well to provide aid where most needed. IDE has targeted 20 township areas containing an estimated 8,000 -9,000 villages. About 125 staff have been mobilized to work in these areas - approximately six per township. The initial focus will be on providing immediate relief but rebuilding the agricultural and food security systems will receive equal priority and attention.

Solution

Distributing clean water supplies to large groups of homeless survivors; training local groups to set these up themselves; Distributing materials for temporary shelters; providing food and basic necessities to temporary encampments.
