We're delighted to be able to share some of the photographs of food aid arriving into villages in Chin State during September and October.
Despite an arduous journey by the team and many volunteers, there was immense gratitude from villagers for the provision of food aid and support received.
The photographs show villagers arriving at collection points where food aid is distributed and shared. The women fill their baskets and then return on foot to their villages.
There are still many families without food in villages connected to the work of Health and Hope through our Community Health Worker training programme and we continue to deliver food aid across the region to those most in need.
Thank you for your support!

We are delighted to report back on the successful delivery of the Clean Delivery Kits to villagers in Chin State. These kits were kindly donated by the UNFPA on 1st September.
Despite huge logistical challenges, the kits have now been safely delivered into the hands of local women, traditional birth attendants and nurses, through a number of free clinics and visits to rural villages in Chin State by Dr Sasa and the team.
We are continuing to support the flood relief efforts in Chin and Rakhine States through a needs assessment, lobbying for the rebuilding of key infrastructure and ongoing food and medical supplies.

The relief efforts continue with the team distributing further food packages and running free health clinics in Chin State.
Over the last week, Dr Sasa was able to meet with the Honourable Chief Minister of Mizoram, Mr Lal Thanhawla as well as the Honourable Chief Minister of Chin State, Mr. Hungai.
We are really grateful to both Chief Ministers who lent their support to the work of Health and Hope. With their generous support, the Health and Hope team have been able travel across the border and run free health clinics in Hakha and in some of the surrounding villages.
Over the next week, Dr Sasa and team will be travelling back through Chin State running mobile health clinics and distributing clean delivery kits provided by the UNFPA into remote village areas.
