Tatmadawman carry out sanitation in Thaton Tsp

DSC_1396 6More than 500 volunteers carried out sanitation works recently in Thaton Township’s Duyinseik Village.
The volunteers included soldiers based at Thaton Station, health workers, firefighters, Red Cross members and local residents.
“We chlorinated wells and cleaned the flood-affected wells,” Head of the Township Health Department U Soe Aung said. “We will join hands with volunteers from social organizations to rebuild latrines.” Health workers are providing treatment at a temporary relief camp.
A camp official said soldiers and community volunteers had helped some evacuees move home after flood waters receded.
“As some areas are still inundated in the township, about 300 victims face difficulty returning home,” the official said.
