Catastrophic Flooding and Long-term Impact
In the month of August, most of Myanmar was hit by massive flooding that affected more than 1 million people and destroyed millions of acres of rice fields. Immediate needs were for food, water, shelter and sanitation. Get a look at our response in the video below. The recovery and rebuilding effort will be long and difficult, but Opportunities NOW will be working alongside the affected in Hakha and Kalaymyo, providing needed assistance to rebuild businesses, training in entrepreneurship, loans to get new businesses started, and mentoring services along the way.
