Yin Ywa is one of the communities where 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. A major part of the project is community education. Red Cross Volunteers from each community regularly run awareness campaigns throughout their village and regularly visit school where they use songs and poems to educate children about water and sanitation, first aid and disaster risk reduction.
