WHILE supplying drinking water to water scarce areas across the country, KBZ’s Brighter Future Myanmar foundation-BFM provided water bowsers to non-governmental societies as part of efforts to speed up its nationwide water supply project.
A water bowsers was handed over to a towns elder in Myittha through the Kanbawza Bank branch in Myittha on 22 May for use in supplying water to local people. Meanwhile, BFM also provided the Kalay Lwinpyin Parahita Society in Kalay with a water bowsers on Monday.
The foundation has also donated a 3,000-gallon water tanker to the Myittamon Parahita Association, which is carrying out social welfare services in Natogyi.
Since early April 2016, the foundation has supplied more than 800,000 gallons of drinking water to a population of 60,000 in arid areas. As part of its efforts to combat water scarcity problems, KBZ’s Brighter Future Myanmar foundation has asked communities currently facing drought and/or a scarcity of fresh water to contact the foundation and arrange for fresh potable water to be delivered.
The foundation plans to build a fleet of up to 42 water bowsers.
