“There are six wells in our village but none can deliver water in the summer,” Sayadaw Bhaddanta Jotika of the village monastery said.
“We are currently facing a water shortage.
“Thanks to the abbot of Maggin monastery from Amarapura, well-wishers are sinking a tube-well in the village.”
A local resident welcomed donations from Yangon for the well.
“Upon completion, we will enjoy water sufficiency,” the resident said.
In order to help supply potable water to the local residents, U Maung Maung Soe of One More Philanthropic Association from Yangon donated K3 million, U Maung Sein and wife Daw Swe Swe Thin K300,000, while U Myo Lwin-Daw Aye Mi San, U Than Lwin and Daw Tin Ohnma donated K200,000.
The well-wishers plan to sink a tube-well for more than 3,000 local people of the village and to store water in a 4,000-gallon tank.
