Yoma Strategic, together with FMI and the SPA Group, has been actively involved in providing relief to those affected by the recent flooding in Myanmar. Together, we have been able to mobilise a variety of resources to take a multi-faceted approach to providing aid. We are also working closely with local organisations who understand their communities and who are best positioned to deploy resources quickly and effectively.

Convenience Prosperity Co. Ltd, (Case New Holland) were at Ye Gyu Township in the Ayeyarwaddy Division to provide immediate aid to villages impacted by the floods.

The following are activities undertaken by Group companies in 2015:

Pun Hlaing Golf Estate – Raising Funds

Balloons Over Bagan has been active on the ground providing supplies to flood victims. The Balloons Over Bagan team traveled by boat to Kyet Sher village, Pakokku Township, where they donated rice, oil, canned fish, water, t-shirts, and hats to 360 families.

Pun Hlaing Siloam Hosptials – Medical Aid and Health Assessments

Dr. Ye Moe Myint of Pun Hlaing Siloam Hospital (PHSH) traveled to Sittwe where he met with health officials at Kyaut Taw clinic to assess the medical needs of the township. Kyaut Taw township has nearly 100 villages and a population of around 200,000. The key challenge now is to prevent an outbreak of cholera and to ensure well-coordinated relief efforts. PHSH is also working on providing clean drinking water through the donation of water filters.
