Emergency Preparedness and Relief

Emergency

KT Care provides emergency relief through the distribution of food and other essential items to those most vulnerable, in accordance to their initial needs, assessed jointly by local stakeholders and community members.

By establishing partnerships with a wide range of organizations and private citizens (both Myanmar and around the world), KT Care has been able to intervene quickly and efficiently in recent Myanmar emergencies, mobilizing local communities or volunteers when necessary.

Beginning with its inception in 2008, KT Care has provided essential food, medicines, toiletries, fuel, blankets and clothing to cyclone Nargis – affected communities in Myaung Mya and Laputta Townships.

KT Care has provided a multitude of relief services over the years, including:

  • School uniforms, robes and bowls distributed in response to a fire in Mingalar Taung Nyunt, in the Yangon area
  • Clothing, food and water in response to the brutal ethnic violence fueled by conflict between the Rakhine (or Arakanese) and Muslim populations in Rakhine State
  • Food and monetary donations have been made to numerous areas affected by fires, floods and other natural disasters

Reconstruction/ Rehabilitation

what-we-do

In 2008, KT Care Foundation constructed and donated school buildings and latrines at Basic Education Primary School, located in the Thet Kel Thaung village in the Ayeyarwaddy Delta, devastated by cyclone Nargis.

As the Delta-area is full of streams and rivers, bridges are essential for communication and transportation purposes. Therefore, the Foundation also renovated a bridge in Thet Kel Thaung that had been destroyed by the passage of the cyclone.
