RCHCSV is conducting a Water purification project in Myanmar supported by 53 Rotary clubs of D3500. The water purification technology is being donated by the Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan. The aim is to create a social enterprise which provides drinkable water for 7,500 in Dala Township which has been suffers from drought during the dry season. RCHCSV is working in collaboration with the local NGO, Shwe Minn Tha Foundation.  

The Myanmar Water Project was started in 2005 by JT Warring.  There are currently 26 water management systems completed in orphanages, schools, monasteries.  The project is partnered with Myanmar Compassion Project and Save the Children. It costs US$ 9,000 to build one water system. Their goal is to build 8 water systems a year. 

The club successfully organised for Mary to receive a heart operation on the 22nd April 2014 as part of their long established international Gift of Life Programme. 


For these projects, the RCY is providing advice and logistic support.

A number of international Rotary Clubs have a long history of supporting Myanmar.  Here are a few that we are aware of so far.
