Enriching lives in Myanmar

Myanmar is a country that has become a role model for our ‘giving back’ initiatives. Asian Trails’ corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes play a major role in this nation as we work to repay the hospitality of our hosts and help local people through sustainable endeavours that benefit the less fortunate.

Two particular CSRs of note are a care home for the elderly in Yangon and a water donation project in Zee O near Bagan.

Situated near Yangon’s iconic Kandawgyi Lake, the Little Sisters of The Poor Home for The Aged is a care home for over 140 elderly residents unable to care for themselves. It is run by a devoted group of catholic nuns who bring comfort into the lives of their aged compatriots.

Asian Trails helps this non-profit, faith-based organisation, with food and medicine supplies. Christmas is a highlight date when our Myanmar team delivers Christmas cheer with song performances and seasonal gifts.

Another Asian Trails’ CSR activity helps a village near the temples of Bagan with the essential source of life. Rural Zee O lies on a dusty and arid plain that encounters perennial water shortages outside of the monsoon season from mid-May to late October. This area receives just 30 per cent of Yangon’s average yearly rainfall.

To help combat this microclimate drought, our team accompany a tanker truck filled with potable water to supply residents’ drinking water needs during the dry months.

Asian Trails is pleased to support communities in Myanmar during these difficult times. Please contact us if you want to help with donations and our country team will facilitate all aid provision.
