Story

Living Water Myanmar is a small but effective charity. It was set up to provide clean drinking water to villages in the Dry Zone of central Myanmar.  The Dry Zone has no rain for 7 months of the year (i.e. mid-October to mid-May) and there is a severe lack of clean drinking water in this area.

To address this problem Living Water Myanmar funds the construction of large concrete water collection tanks to collect the rain during the monsoon season.  Guttering is attached to the school buildings to feed the rain water from the corrugated iron roof to the tank.  

Prior to getting a tank the villagers would typically be depending on a muddy pond or collecting water from a river for all their water needs which could be some distance from the village and also used by animals. The water would be transported by cart or carried in containers taking a lot of time and effort. 

As of November 2019, 303 tanks have been completed providing clean drinking water for many thousands of people.

In the west we take clean drinking water for granted, it's always there at the turn of a tap, but many areas of the world do not have this luxury. This is such a worthwhile cause and has brought this basic amenity to thousands of people already. Ken
