New rain water harvesting tank in Nge Thu Myit Tan that provides secure water for about 230 people.
Phyu Phyu Wai and her seven year old nice Phu Pwint Phyu are among those who benefit from the tank.
The rain water harvesting tank in Shwe Pyi Aye shortly before completion. The installation of the water tap is one of the last steps.
Whilst rather unsafe rain water ponds are a common source in Myanmar. arche noVa improves those water sources by installing filter systems or fences to protect the ponds from animals. In Put Lone Taing the fencing had to be rehabilitated.
There are few locations to dug a shallow well as the ground water in the delta region mostly is too salty to drink. Acurate assessments are essential.
Depending on the location deeper boreholes like this one in Ka Mu Khine can be an option.
In most cases electric pumps an generators will then have to be installed.
All the new evacuation centers or safe points get their own water supply. This safe point in La Wine Kyun was handed iver in April 2017.
