More than 200 wells have been dug by the help of charity doctor Dr. Than Min Htut, who is known as the Pindaya Mee-ain-shin, to provide clean drinking water to areas that have difficulty.

With the donations he received, 202 wells have been drilled, he wrote on Facebook.

“Is it possible? I even asked myself. I have donated water to 200 villages. It started in 2012 in Pindaya Hospital, now it has reached 200. I never dreamed that I would be able to donate water to 200 villages,” he said, marking the number of villages that have reached 200.

The programme is still in progress, and a few days ago, as a birthday charity by a wellwisher, a donation was made for water well No 202 at the primary school of Kawetchaung village, Myaungmya Township.

The school has a very old self-constructed rainwater tank that has been unable to hold water for years, and when it rains, the children have to fetch water from the lake, which is about 1000 feet away, with buckets.

“The water of this lake is bordered by a farm, so pesticides, cow dung, and sprays often flow. They all know that the water should not be drunk, but when there is no water to drink, they have to keep the water overnight, put alum in it, and inevitably drink it. The road is difficult, and there are no boats selling clean water like in other villages. Water is the only essential thing for them. Now they have fresh water at 480 feet,” he wrote.

Dr. Than Min Htut also said that since 1 August, 2023, 76 houses have been built under the name of Five Star Houses for those who are in need from all over the country.
