Afloat

Description

A mother and child in Myanmar’s Magway region navigate a swollen waterway in mangers normally used for feeding cattle.

Typhoon Komen blazed through the Bay of Bengal during  the summer of 2015, killing hundreds of people in Myanmar, Bangladesh, and India and lashing the region with monsoon rains. The ensuing widespread floods and landslides affected millions by destroying homes, crops, and roads.

In hard-hit Myanmar, where 12 of 14 states were affected, 117 people died and nearly 400,000 people were displaced. 

World Vision staff helped 60,600 flood survivors in the first three months of the response by providing drinking water, food supplies, latrines, shelter kits, mosquito nets, and school supplies. Families are still recovering.
