Rakhine State after Cyclone Giri project reports

Dear Friends of Myanmar Compassionate Hands;

From 22 Feb to 25 Feb, I have a chance to travel to Rhine State. Actually I can save money and time of Compassionate Hands because I have an tour assignment to Myauk Oo from 18 to 22 and I used this opportunity to travel to the villages where we did our projects by Myanmar Compassionate Hands. Moreover, I visited to Shwe Zedi Monastic education school where we are going to donate for school material support by Escolaridad Solidaria in next year.

On 18 Feb, I visited to Shwe Zedi monastic education school. I distributed about 200+ school children them sweets which I brought from Yangon. They really enjoyed this treat and I gave ball pen to the teachers.

On 22 afternoon, when my tourists went to Ngapali beach, I start my journey together with Kha Maung Dwe Sayadaw(head monk whom is helping Compassionate hands to build school and to dig 6 wells . To reach to the boat we are going to take us, I need to step down on a small boat first because our big boat which will cross sea and at the Sittwe port has many rock and sea shells. Fortunately we arrived there at 2 p.m safely., men on the boat, but I have to sit inside the boat together with kind ladies whom made me a place to sit for this 6 hours boat ride on the Bay of Bangal. I have a spot to sit on the cement bags and later I moved on the boat floor which is about 2' x 2'. But they are so sociable and friendly. I cannot understand their Rakhine dialect but I tried hard to understand about 60-70% of what they would like to talk and share about their place, experience and how thankful their are toward us. At first , they don't know whom I am and later because of some people whom came to know from Sayadaw as a donor for this wells they start calling me "Yee Twin Shin Ma" which is little bit like donor of the wells. Actually I feel very shy because this wells were donated by compassionate hands around the world but not by my donation only one. But My Rakhine language is not that good I just told them it's all contribution. After passing 6 hours we arrived to the village entrance. To reach there  we have to walk on the muddy and slippery beach. One kind man came and help me, without his help  I am not sure how can i walk on this muddy walkway in the dark with the help of the flash light.

Next Day we start our day with meeting with children. For them I brought biscuits, cookies, sweets and balloons. All the children whom are studying at "Child friendly School" by safe the children came under the monastery. These children will be benefit from the school which we are going to build. I gave this school name as "Compassionate School" In Burmese "Karuna School".Later, we took photos together, we visited to the place where we are going to build the school. We passed the  well which we dig for them.The well is big, and the water is only one clean water source for the whole village to drink and cook which can use safely. Actually, this school building will become the strong stone, concrete reinforce school which can be use as school in normal time and will be safe as a shelter for emergency time as cyclone. Later, we proceed by walking to the   another village called Paik Seik village where most of the villagers are poor and their live is so difficult. At this village the well was so difficult when we dig because this was a place close to the rocks. But now they have better chance because there's a natural spring at the mountain, we connect the well with this spring water source and there's no way for this well to be dried up because our well serve as a water reservoir in time of saving water and time. But when we dig that well it took five weeks to finish this, so far the longest well to dig.

After lunch again we took a small boat to different villages. First we reached to Nga Ra Ba Chine where our 5th well is going to dig, we found a good spot where is close to natural spring and have a great chance to get clean and clear water. We saw their temporary school also. We cannot proceed to sixth well village because of water and wind condition and time constraint. Later, we reached to Nga Me Pyin village where our third well is under construction. Villagers came to this well to collect water . After that we went to Nga Yee Chine village, where our 4th well is under construction. When   we reached at a good high to start building, it rained and landslide and rain water came into the well, We will pump out the water, and restart to build the well in short time.

The next day morning is really a lively and important day for all. From about 4 a.m villagers came to the monastery, to prepare for the big occassion at their village. They steam stickey rice, boil water to make English tea and green tea, cooking traditional Rakhine Moti. Later they are ready. According to the tradition, village elders, monks from nearby villages, all school children came to the foundation stone lading of the Compassionate School. At first, Monks recite Paritas, share merits with all beings and later, they put foundation stone for the school, first concrete pillar for the school was pulled by the help of all whom are nearby, and then follow by the treat to all villagers whom are attending the ceremony. They really enjoyed their treat and everybody have a great time together. We do have a nice time at the foundation stone and first pillar at Compassionate school.

The living situation of the people was really bad. Even after 4months from Cyclone, they are living under a small houses, i will share more photos later, they have difficult time, not enough teacher, no good nutrition, and many other problems. I will write and share more with you all

Later we went back to Sittwe, and the next day Sayadaw bought cement bags, steel iron pole for concrete pillars and school books for the children whom were missed by contribution of safe the children and many other things for this project.

To tell the truth, I have many feeling and stories which i have seen through my eyes and I want to share with you all in more details.

with all of my metta and thank you for your kind contributions

Be Happy, healthy and peaceful
