From 7 – 8 July 2020, along with Community Care Myanmar (CCM), we distributed rice, cooking oil, canned goods, soap, masks, and other basic essentials to communities in Dagon Seikkan Township in Yangon, Myanmar. These goods were given to 500 at-risk families, totaling 2,527 people. The recipients, who were identified as the most vulnerable, were very appreciative of our support, since all of them were experiencing hardships of some sort due to the pandemic, such as lost jobs, reduced income, health issues, and higher health costs, among many others.
