Captured and told by women and girls from Noe Htaa Baund village, Hlaingbwe Township Kayah State, this video highlights the shortage of clean water access in their village, which forces women to carry water from far away. Due to the lack of water, women and children face challenges that men don’t. For example, women lack clean water for giving birth, breastfeeding and menstruation.
Pact Myanmar - Health and Hope: Promoting Access to Quality Health Care Services in Kayah State (Video)
To commemorate the recent International Nurses Day which is celebrated around the world every May 12, the Advancing Community Empowerment (ACE) project supported by USAID, showcased how the project is promoting access to quality health care services in Southeastern Myanmar.
Since May 2019, ACE local partner and grant recipient Civil Health and Development Network (CHDN) has been implementing a two-year healthcare project. To date, CHDN has trained 115 traditional birth attendants (TBAs) to provide more effective health services in remote communities, including providing 805 pregnant women with antenatal care (ANC) and assisting in 344 deliveries. Find out more in this short video about how CHDN's activities are bringing impact in Kayah State.

Each child is unique, no one is the same!
Before the Thai government urged residents to stay home due to COVID-19, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) helda a wheelchair fitting training and distribution in northeast Thailand. BCMF worked with Thai health care professionals from Kuchinarai Hospital in Kalasin Province, the Department of Public Health in Surin Province, and Khu Muang Hospital in Buriram Province. According to Khun Paitoon, the manager of the rehabilitation unit at Kuchinarai Hospital, "This type of adjustable wheelchair [from BCMF] is what our children need. We only received standard adult sized [manual] wheelchairs from the central government program.The children that are under our care, they are not standard sized." Sitting in adult wheelchairs is not only extremely uncomfortable for small children but it is also unsafe. One mother was very happy to receive a children's wheelchair for her daughter. In the past, her daughter used to lay on the floor when they carried her outside or to the local music festival. Now, her mother planes to bring her around their village and to the festival in her individually fitted children's wheelchair.
Looking after children with disabilities under difficult circumstance is not easy for their carers, yet they continue to do so with love. Thank you for your tireless work. Thank you also to Khun Ranu from Sirindhorn Hospital in Khon Kean for connecting us to our new partners. To our local partners including Khun Paitoon, Khun Satit, Khun Panwadee, Khun Eddy, Khun Sirirat, Khun Duanchai and their teams, thank you for making this project possible.
And a special thanks to Wheelchairs for Kids, Rotary Club of Wanneroo and Chiang Mai International Rotary Club. With your support and kind donation of the wheelchairs BCMF was able to improve a part of the lives of these children requiring child wheelchairs.
