CSR & Community Donations

kyaukmyet-flood1

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.

kangon-flood1Due to the increase in request for assistance, the villagers of Kangon were provided with food-stuffs, rice and cooking oil on the 8th of August 2015 to support the flood victims continuing to be impacted by the rising waters and damaged flood areas.

 

dondaw-flood3Dondaw Village is located adjacent to the newly relocated MYTCL lease, and has been graciously returned farmlands that they had occupied in 2013 from the pre-existing lease upon instruction from the President's Office. The village hugs the boundary of the mine's Sabetaung Waste Dump and during the excessive flooding in August of 2015, the village found much of it's crops destroyed by the muddy waters of both the Yama Stream and the Chindwin River. On the 10th of August, additional donations of rice and cooking oil were supplied to this village in need. Approximately 40,000 USD of additional flood relief has been provided by MYTCL to it's neighbouring villagers.

gondaw-flood7A second visit to the northern village of Gondaw that lies on the original lease boundary of the S&K Project was conducted on the 10th of August, 2015 to assist with further food and cooking supplies to assist with the continuing strife the villagers are suffering against the rising waters of the Yama Stream and the Chindwin River.

The MYTCL Public Relations Department in unity with the village CSD Team delivered these much needed items to the villages in the region without hesitation, as the people called out for assistance, and while the flooding continues to thwart farming and the ability for villagers to return to their homes.
