Through networking, Parahita groups are working to provide help and rescue if floods continue in Myanmar.
Since the flood broke out in Myitkyina and nearby areas, they have started providing necessary help for flood-affected people by networking. Now, they have made preparations to go to affected areas where they can reach them if required.
“We have made sure we are ready for operating boats and water pumps since the early monsoon season. In the Myitkyina flood, we helped connect with local Parahita groups when we received calls for help.
If water flows down, the network of Parahita groups is strong in Magway. I’m worried about Hinthada because people are living beside the embankment. We’ve prepared for it,” said Yangon-based Shwe Myitta Parahita group chair Daw Shwe Lei.
At present, Parahita groups have worked through networking and also provided donations to flood-affected areas, she said.
“Mountain streams cause Myitkyina’s flood, and the water will drop back when we arrive there, so we’ve prepared for the assistance that local Parahita groups will need. But they could deal with it on their own, without needing our help. We can help locals by advising them on how they can contact local Parahita groups. We have prepared to provide help in making networks or going in person to cooperate with them if they need our workforce,” she said. — Htet Oo Maung/ZS
