AS part of its efforts in combating the water scarcity problem currently affecting the country, KBZ’s Brighter Future Myanmar Foundation funded K50 million to a water supply project yesterday to pipe water from a natural water source to the residents of Pintaya, southern Shan State.
On that same day officials of the KBZ Bank in Taunggyi donated over K31 million to the reconstruction of a bridge in Kanthaya Ward and K140million to the construction of a Dhamma School in Taunggyi on behalf of the foundation.
KBZ’s Brighter Future Myanmar Foundation has also invited farmers who have lost cattle due to recent severe weather to contact local foundation representatives in order to receive compassionate cash assistance.
Meanwhile, KBZ’s Brighter Future Myanmar Foundation has funded K50 million into the reconstruction of 350 homes and to repair the roofs of 1,134 homes destroyed by the El Nino-induced gale-force wind and hail storms on 22 and 23 April.
The foundation has further donated 6,000 zinc coated roof sheets to Kyaukse Township, which was also hit by the severe weather. Four thousand zinc coated roof sheets have been donated to Singaing Township at a total value of K35 million.
The foundation has paid the farmers approximately K1million for every cow lost, and so far have compensated for 17 cows.
Meanwhile, KBZ’s Brighter Future Myanmar Foundation is supplying drinking water by water tankers to people facing a scarcity of water induced by El Nino and has drilled 112 tube-wells so far to help alleviate drought.
