Clean water arrives in the village of Bayar Ngar Sue

Celebrate clean water!

It’s Water Festival in Myanmar!

Happy Thingyan from all of us at Shanta and Muditar! Enjoy this short video from Nge Nge and Maw Kin on how clean, safe water is changing lives in one rural village.

Thingyan is the Burmese New Year Festival that marks the end of the dry season and welcomes the rain. This five day celebration is a public holiday, coinciding with summer vacation for school children. Water throwing is a signature activity to cleanse the body, mind, and spirit.

Can you picture what your world would be like without running water in your home? Imagine collecting all of your drinking and cooking water from the same village water source that animals drink, families bathe, wash their clothes, and dishes.

Because of your support, Shanta is making clean water accessible in three more villages this year!
