In response to recent flooding in Myanmar, Convoy of Hope is distributing much needed relief supplies to affected people. Across the country of Myanmar, thousands of homes have been severely damaged or destroyed, leaving hundreds of thousands of people displaced.

As resources are stretched thin and water contamination is rampant, Convoy is focusing on providing food, clean water, water filters, and solar lamps. Through our partners on the ground, Convoy can work in this historically isolated country. We are honored to serve those affected by this catastrophic flooding.
