The flood waters have long gone or so it seems... to revisit the community which is now high and dry, even dusty on some days just amazes me.
A few weeks ago as far as the eye could see in any direction was 10 feet plus of water... homes, livelihoods and worldly possessions washed away and destroyed. The roads remain damaged and for the most part only passable by motorcycle, but the resilience of the families is so strong - taking life a day at a time.
We have replaced lost and damaged homes and we are continuing to repair sanitation units water damage and building new ones for those who had not yet had one allocated.
Our work is always in TANDEM with the community and we have been grateful as has the community for this support. Thatch is being produced to replaced water damaged panels and whilst we cannot get in currently with vehicles we are able to take small amounts of materials - such as 2 bags of cement and a couple of hundred bricks - at a time in our small tuk tuk. This is however a arduous trip and has to be taken very slowly!
With determination and persistence, matched by the families who have had to deal with this natural disaster - we will get back on top of things!
Thank you to all who have so generously supported us and our work in feeding these families at the height of the floods... 4.5 tonnes of rice was ferried in, hundreds and hundreds of bottles of soya sauce, fish sauce, cooking oil, and thousands of cans of fish + .5 tonnes of fresh vegetables all went in to the community to feed them and keep them afloat!
Without your support we would never have been able to supply so much... our work is ongoing!
