Key Meetings and Free Health Clinics

Posted on 14th September 2015 by Chris Jones

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.

Food aid transported to villagers in need in Chin State

Posted on 1st September 2015 by Chris Jones

The Health and Hope teams have been working incredibly hard to transport over 25,000kg of food aid in very challenging road and weather conditions into Chin State. 

Many volunteers have helped with the distribution of food aid which must be kept dry from continuing rains and moved between storage locations until it can be distributed to villagers in need.

We are really proud and thankful of the hard work of our team and volunteers who have supported these efforts and who have assisted particularly with the transport and carrying of heavy rice bags long distances to reach those in need.

We are continuing to undertake damage assessment work across Rakhine and Chin state and have already distributed evaluation forms to over 300 villages in Rakhine State alone.  This data will be compiled in mid-late September to provide a comprehensive needs asessment for the region.

There are an estimated 8,000 pregnant women affected by the flooding in areas where Health and Hope work.

We are grateful to the UNFPA local office in Yangon who have today provided Health and Hope with 400 clean delivery kits for pregnant women in Chin and Rakhine States.

We'll be transporting this to the region shortly.
