NGO & Humanitarian: Health and Resilience in Myanmar - Aust Red Cross: Myanmar-ARC-website1

In the late afternoon the small creek dividing Kwe Ma and Thae Pyu villages. During the monsoon the creek turns into a fast moving river and can be dangerous. River bank collapse is a common natural disaster affecting communities living in the area of central Myanmar known as the Dry Zone. The dry zone is one of the most food insecure areas in the country, Irregular and scarce rainfall leads to water shortages and constitute a regular threat to rural livelihoods. Australian Red Cross has been working with Myanmar Red Cross to carry out a Community Based Health & Resilience project in the area. CBHR seeks to educate and ensure sustainable changes to water and sanitation practices in the villages where they are working.
