The first Christmas Food Baskets have started to arrive to villages in Chin State!
We're delighted to post below pictures of rice, cooking oil, soya beans, salt and biscuits, provided by supporters of Health and Hope, reaching villagers in need. Thank you so much to all who have contributed to this vital work.
Each family brought their baskets to the centre of the village and the team, along with the elders of the village, arranged for the aid to be distributed.
In Lailenpi and the surrounding villages, 75% of the harvest was lost (in comparison to 2014) due to the impact of cyclone Komen, resulting in the need for 250,000kg of food aid to support villagers until the next harvest.
There is a still a long road ahead of us, but thank you to all who have supported the work so far. If you haven't yet had a chance to support our appeal, the team will be hard at work over the coming weeks and months transporting food aid into villages in Chin and Rakhine State.
