Voice from Kalay Myo (Sagaing State)
Kalay – Pastor Sang Uk Cung
“All the rice and food are gone; all clothes are destroying together with pots and plates. Very sad and depress, can’t sleep and lost of appetite. Do not know how to survive further, seems heaven fall down.
Some parents are murmuring that all paddy fields are totally destroyed; we cannot support our kids to their education. We do not know how to earn for daily living and live again. Some said all their animals like cow, buffalo use for their farm and paddy field and pigs, chickens are all gone; we have no future and hopeless. Want to die instead of without having any things for basic needs.
Children are crying most of the time and said ‘I am scare’. They dare not to wear wet clothes. They cry for food, water because they are thirsty and hungry.”
Voice from Hakha (Chin State)
Hakha – Tha Tha Member of ECDC Staff CBR project manager
“If we have food such as rice and corn it is enough at the moment. The price of rice and food are increasing crazily and cannot think how to get food for daily living, how to feed our children and family member, cannot sleep and think any more. Some elder person who have in the camp are murmuring that I cannot stay any more in this place, please send me back to my own house and I prefer to die at there instead of living in this camp or other people’s house daily. Many parent worry that they cannot send their kids to school any more.”
