The Australian Salesian Missions Office is seeking support for victims of the floods in Myanmar, the result of heavy monsoon downpours since early July.

Tens of thousands of people remain stranded in mountainous regions after relentless rains caused flash floods and triggered landslides sweeping away homes, roads and bridges.

More than 260,000 are affected – a number that is expected to rise. Many of these are living in makeshift evacuation centres. As the waters creep into the lower lands, more villages will be flooded.

The Salesians have ten communities in Myanmar, five of which are in relatively remote areas. Food, mosquito nets, mats, containers for drinking water, pots and pans will be needed in all centres.

A report with background information provided by Cardinal Charles Bo (Yangon) and Salesian Provincial Fr Charles Saw is available.

Tax deductible donations for the Myanmar flood victims may be sent to Salesian Missions Australia or made on-line via our website – click on the tab Donation, then on the Make a Donation Give Now icon.

Funds will be transferred promptly to Myanmar.

Director, Australian Salesian Mission Overseas Aid,
