WATER ACCESS TO ALL PROJECT

MYANMAR

IMG_0090.jpg

Mynamar a land of lush landscapes and vibrant cultures, faces a pressing challenge - the clean water crisis. Despite its natural beauty, a significant portion of the population in Myanmar struggles to access safe and reliable drinking water and with ongoing tensions, that problem gets worse for the people.

Waterborne Diseases: The lack of clean water sources exposes communities to waterborne diseases, such as cholera, typhoid, and diarrheal illnesses. These diseases can have severe consequences on health, particularly affecting vulnerable groups like children and the elderly.

Inadequate Sanitation: Poor sanitation facilities and improper waste disposal contribute to water contamination, further exacerbating the water crisis. The absence of proper sanitation facilities impacts public health and poses environmental concerns.

Rural Disparities: Rural areas often bear the brunt of the water crisis, with limited infrastructure and access to clean water sources. As a result, communities in these regions face daily struggles to secure safe drinking water.

Climate Change Impact: Burma is vulnerable to the effects of climate change, which can lead to more frequent and severe water-related challenges like flooding, droughts, and saltwater intrusion. These factors intensify the existing water crisis.

Social and Economic Implications: The lack of access to clean water affects education, livelihoods, and overall socio-economic development. Women and children, primarily responsible for water collection, often have limited opportunities for education and economic empowerment.

OUR MISSION

Our project aims to address the clean water crisis in MYANMAR by funding clean water initiatives, including the distribution of Sawyer water filters and organizing clean water trips. With your support, we strive to bring the essential gift of clean water to the communities in Vietnam, alleviating the burden of waterborne illnesses and paving the way for a healthier and more prosperous future.

Join us in our mission to make a positive impact in MYANMAR and beyond, where the availability of clean water is not just a necessity but a fundamental human right. Together, we can turn the tide against the clean water crisis and bring hope to those in need.

Filter + Bucket.png

In November 2024, we are planning to return to the beach village to not only check up on the filters we had donated during the previous trip, but bring more filters for the many families living in the area.

THE GOAL is the equip more households in the village with a filter bucket system and if possible, set up filters in the neighboring villages. 

We will be bringing between around 50 more filters for families living in the area. This means we have the ability to impact the lives of around 200 people, who before did not have access to clean drinking water.


In addition to water filters, we will be bringing over surf equipment and tools so better equip the local surfers in the area with the opportunities they deserve. The local surfers have become the leaders of the community and have taken the responsibility of training and setting up filters in their own community. Our goal is to future empower them so that they can expand their futures and their access to the ocean and the world.
