It is unfortunate that the living conditions of the local villagers in the Central Dry Zone (CDZ)- area where we work, is still not stable. CDZ is known to be Myanmar`s most water stressed, among the most impoverished, and with the harshest environmental conditions. The political turmoil led to soaring prices, severe cash shortages, and struggling local villagers. The number of people in need is increasing exponentially, and if not properly addressed, starving people and malnourished cases will increase.
In response to this situation, we reached out to the villages through our food aid program. We continue implementing our agricultural support program to stabilize the main source of income of the villagers. Taking into consideration the security situation and safety of our staff and the villagers, we are targeting to distribute relief goods, including rice, oil, eggs, vegetables, and others until the end of this year.
Amidst the chaos, the villagers feel grateful for the timely food and agricultural support. As the rainy season ends and the dry season begins, there is a high chance that more villagers will be in great need for support. We will continue monitoring the situation, and are committed to render support for the local people who are in need.
Thank you for your continued support.
