Living Water Myanmar
As part of our parish ‘Covenant with the poor’ one of the charitable projects chosen for 2018, was “Living Water Myanmar”.
“Living Water Myanmar” is a charity which is a community development project that focuses on Water Security in one of the most impoverished regions of the country. This project is motivated by the severe lack of drinking water for villagers and school communities in the Dry Zone of Myanmar. The charity runs a water collection tank project which was started in 2011 in Nyaung Oo township to help schools and communities in the Dry Zone have access to clean water.
As a result of the parish fund raising as part of the Parish Project in 2018 a water tank has now been built in the village of Kanlun (north) in Kyaukpadaung. The charity has built two tanks there – one for the school and one for the community . Saint Edmund’s Parish has paid for the water tank for the school which is shown in the photographs above.
