A donation of Kyat 2.3 million worth water treatment plant and water pumps from the National League for Democracy (NLD) has come as a boon to two villages in Cyclone Nargis-hit Bogale Township, Irrawaddy Division.

The NLD Bogale Township Organizing Committee members supervised drilling of tube wells in Upper Pho Nyo and Kani Gyi villages. Now the party has donated drinking water facilities.

"We donated a 8' x 4.5' water storage tank capable of holding 800 gallons of water, a water filtering tank and water pumps with compressors to village elders on March 2 by inviting an abbot from Pho Nyo village," Ohn Kyaing, NLD Nargis Assistance Committee Chairman told Mizzima.

"The water from the tube wells were tested and we also arranged for a certificate by water experts after laboratory reports, which say the water is fit for drinking," he added.

Upper Pho Nyo village has 300 houses and 1,800 people and in Kani village there are over 1,000 people and over 200 houses. The villagers will use the water from the two tube wells donated by NLD.

"The water from Kani Gyi village tube well is pure and also tastes good. According to the chemical laboratory report, it has no impurities and is potable water grade," Nargis Assistance Committee Secretary Dr. Win Naing said.

The Committee donated seed money of Kyat 50,000 each to two monasteries in the two villages ravaged by Cyclone Nargis.

Cyclone Nargis devastated Irrawaddy and Rangoon Division on May 2008 leaving about 140,000 people dead or missing and about 2.4 million people homeless.
