Giving hope to villages in Myanmar

Braving torrential rains, SMEC and Surbana Jurong employees travelled dirt roads to Hlegu Township in Myanmar. In partnership with Global Village for Hope and supported by the Southeast Asia CSR committee, the teams donated school bags, notebooks, stationery, snacks and umbrellas to 420 primary school children in the villages of Shwe Pok Pin and Mayflower.



Staff helped to transport, pack and distribute the items, going house to house to visit with the children. In addition to volunteering their time, our teams helped to raise around MMK 2,580,000 (USD 1,687), which was donated to Global Village for Hope for the construction of a water well in one of their adopted villages.



Global Village for Hope is a Singapore-based civil society organisation that supports children from underprivileged villages in the outskirts of Yangon whose families have been displaced due to natural disaster or poverty.
