MPT to Share the Gift of Clean Water to More Communities through Clean and Sustainable Water Program

 

(Yangon, 29th January 2019) Myanmar’s first and leading telecommunication operator, MPT has announced that it is teaming up with NGO partners, Network Activities Group (NAG) and Bridge Asia Japan (BAJ) to organize water projects under its “Clean and Sustainable Water Program” to address the struggles of communities in water-stressed areas by ensuring the supply of clean water and improving hygiene for everyone. For the projects which involve the drilling and construction of tube wells, 4,500 people were provided access to clean water.

 

Many regions in Myanmar face clean water shortages or lack proper access to reliable water supplies, an issue exacerbated by the annual onset of the hot season, which disrupts the livelihoods and living conditions of primarily rural communities. With limited access to nearby water sources, some families are forced to plan ahead to store enough for their daily usage during particularly punishing dry spells. A total of 25 tube wells and reservoir ponds have been donated and around 50,000 people from all the respective areas have access to clean water. Recognizing these factors and the prohibitive costs hindering communities from building groundwater reservoirs without any funding or support, MPT and its NGO partners are stepping up to provide their expertise and resources for the endeavor.

 

The drillings have already been carried out and will finish this year March in the following locations:

No. Region Township Village
1. Mandalay Myingyan Kanni / Dulabo
2 Mandalay Nyaung-U Ywapale
3 Magway Yenangyaung Thitmyinttaw
4 Magway Chauk Myaypadon
5 Sagaing Monywa Paukngetaw

 

Mr. Yoshiaki Benino, Chief Operator of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations said, “MPT has introduced the “Clean and Sustainable Water Program” to ensure communities gain reliable and convenient access to clean water which makes a huge difference in their lives. Together with our partners NAG and BAJ, we will continue providing the requisite assistance and expertise to enable access clean and hygienic water in a sustainable approach for the long-suffering residents of these areas, who often have to travel far just to find supplies. The availability of clean water also improves the overall hygiene and health of these communities. This contribution, with all its benefits, will positively transform the lives of many in these rural areas, in line with our Myanmar in Our Heart approach to CSR engagements.”

 

U Bobby, CEO of NAG said, This year marks the third time we are collaborating with MPT and BAJ to support the communities that struggle with a lack of clean water supplies. Through access to sustainable clean water project, we were able to empower and uplift their well-being and contributing to Sustainable Development Goals No. 6 which access to Clean Water and Sanitation. We have supported clean water access to 13 villages in 2017 (nearly 8,400 Households, 38,000 people) and 13 villages in 2018 (nearly 2,000 Households, 8,400 people) with MPT fund. We have been continuously following up with the Water Management Committee of the villages, whether any issues they are facing and/or any support needed. Without MPT support, we could not solve such an important issue effectively.

 

Ms. Akiko Mori, Country Representative for BAJ Myanmar said, “We understand how distressing it is to not have access to clean water for even simple, but no less crucial, everyday activities such as cooking, cleaning, feeding livestock and much more. Once the projects being implemented with our partners are up and running, no longer do people from these areas have to travel very far for clean water, thus changing living conditions for the better. It is sustainable community projects like this that truly make a long-term impact and we are proud to be a part of this campaign.”

“Even more volunteers have signed up for our second clean-up campaign following our successful first nationwide effort earlier this year, an inspiring display of commitment from our employees and members of the public around the country. As the largest telecommunications operator in Myanmar, we were able to assemble more than 6,000 MPT staff and volunteers from public and generate even greater public involvement for this massive undertaking to help revitalize the Myanmar’s public and prominent community spaces. Certain places and landmarks central to the daily lives of many, are marred by undesirable actions such as littering and spitting. Not only do they spoil otherwise beautiful locations, they are also detrimental to health due to the resulting unsanitary conditions. That is why we want to also highlight the importance of maintaining clean and hygienic spaces for everyone,” said Mr. Yoshiaki Benino, Chief Operating Officer of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations. 

“Keeping Myanmar in our hearts, we are very proud to not only be providing enriching services but also to engage in activities that help improve the lives of those in its vibrant communities, joining hands with the regional government, local non-governmental organizations and social groups as the only operator involved on a nationwide scale in this way. We hope to see a good turnout on what should be a great day of cleaning up!” he added.

The nationwide cleanup campaign is a unique initiative amongst the country’s operators, with MPT able to mobilize the largest staff of passionate employees across the country whilst inspiring more people in various states and regions in total of more than 6,000 to do more for their communities. Through this effort, more can be done to uplift and preserve their environment. It is beneficial for society economically and socially in the long-term, in line with MPT’s overall aim to benefit the country through its three key CSR pillars namely; health, education and business incubation. With a heightened awareness on preserving a healthy environment, it helps prevent harmful effects to health and improves the quality of life, especially for future generations.
