CSR & Community Donations

ayegon4

Senior Management at MYTCL not only handed out the rescue instructions during the flood crisis of August, but they also pitched in and helped with the organisation, the manpower assignments, vehicles and fuel, some donations on their own behalf, as well as all of the workspaces needed for smooth relief efforts. Ayegone Village received the MYTCL PR Team and CSD Team on August 7th 2015, and the small village of 27 households and 110 inhabitants with a Monastery were provided with 10 bags of rice, cooking oil and a variety of foodstuffs that is estimated to last between 2-3 weeks for each of the families.

 

hatnaunggone9Priorities change during crisis situations, and when the panic sets in, quite often the whole scenario can become a blur. People rush to and fro in frantic desperation to save those in immediate danger, but the danger lingers on past those initial moments, and does not stop with the setting of the sun.

 

The next days see the grateful lull in the rise of the rivers, even a drop in the waterline that has engulfed the villages. But now the damages reveal themselves as the silt and mud prove wreckage of the farms, the livestock caught in the surge of waters, and the homes that once were filled with family, now show only the ruin of river mud.

The PR team was met with smiles and eyes filled with amazement that their village had been recognized by MYTCL for donations, as the village is not part of the CSD membership. Nevertheless, the General Manager of MYTCL sent the teams to this village to offer assistance in their time of need.

The village of Kyaukmyet has been working hand in hand with the S&K Project since it's conception in the 1990's. Now, 25 years later the bonds between the village and the mine continue to grow stronger.

As the water rose to the point where villagers began to risk their lives to save their posessions, their families and their livestock, MYTCL made careful preparations to assist when they had all been safely moved to high ground. Anticipating that the primary need would be food and medicine, the PR Department and the CSD Team moved into action on the General Manager's instruction to aide the village, as it found itself having to abandon their homes to higher grounds.
