Vice President Visit to Health and Hope

Vice President's visit 

We were absolutely delighted to host Vice President U Henry Van Thio in Lailenpi on Monday 27th February.  The Vice President arrived by helicopter, along with Deputy Minister Major-General Than Htut and Union Minister U Thant Sin Maung among other key dignitaries.

During the visit, the Vice President reviewed the work of Health and Hope, the proposal for building of an airstrip in Lailenpi and inspected the progress of development work within Lailenpi Town. Over 2,000 townspeople, led by Dr Sasa, got hard to work to prepare for his arrival - even constructing two helipads to safely receive him!   Click here to read more

The mission of Health and Hope is to bring primary healthcare, education, hope and development to the poorest people in and around Chin State, Myanmar (Burma) through community engagement and empowerment.

Health and Hope is a community-based organisation and partners with local villages regardless of tribal association, religious background, gender or social standing. Health and Hope shares the ownership of its life-changing programmes with the communities it serves.

In 2015-2016 we delivered over 100 tonnes of food aid to help rural villagers survive after the devastating impact of Cyclone Komen. We were able to run free clinics across southern Chin State reaching out to over 200 Community Health Workers and the 40,000 people they serve.  We were able to build the first community health clinic in Lailenpi Town and start work on a hydro-electric solution bringing electricity and clean water to over 3,000 villagers.
