From right after the disaster in midland Myanmar, the local staffs of AMDA group has conducted the damage assessment and started distribution of relief goods and medical equipment required at temporary clinics in the affected areas.

Based on the assessment results, and the official request from the Ministry of Health in Pakkoku District, AMDA group has donated medical equipment, water filters, blankets, flashlights, hygiene sets (towels, soaps, tumblers, tooth brushes etc.) for 286 households, population of 7,345 in 7 villages.

On 1st Nov., Mr. Suzuki, Chairperson and Ms.Suzuki, a coordinator of AMDA Multisectoral & Integrated Development Services (AMDA MINDS hereafter)based in Myanmar visited villages including Shadu Village with assistance director of Ministry of Health in Pakkoku District. On 2nd Nov., two staffs of AMDA MINDS met the director of Ministry of Health, and shared the information on the current situation on which the future activities will be planned.

UNOCHA (United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs) reported on 27th October that the figure of the affected people has hit 26,005, 6,436 of washed out houses, and partially collapsed houses were 2,023. AMDA MINDS has on-going project in Pakkoku Township, Magway District which is the most seriously affected area in this flood. In this area, 67 death and injured, 2,523 affected population, 1,270 washed out houses, and 384 partially collapsed houses have been recorded.

There is an increasing concern that there will be an outbreak of infectious diseases such as respiratory infections amongst the evacuees due to the overflow of infected water source, once the water level declines.
