Save the Children is providing relief to thousands children and adults in four townships near the city of Yangon. We delivered food, water purification tablets and kits, plastic sheeting and kitchen equipment. We also distributed oral rehydration salts to help combat diarrhea in children, as families were reportedly using flood water and water from lakes for consumption and cooking. We are planning to expand our reach to children and families in six more townships near Yangon.
We are providing food, water purification tablets, plastic sheeting, kitchen equipment, re-hydration salts for those with diarrhea etc. to thousands people whose homes have been destroyed.
Assistance will be provided to thousands of survivors of Cyclone Nargis that are lacking shelter, drinking water, power and communications.
