Myanmar Scouts: Project Oasis for people living in slum areas
In May 2020, Myanmar Scouts organized the Project Oasis intended for people who are living in slum areas in Yangon. At the same time, thie project supported Rover Scouts who volunteered at government quarantine centres.
A total of 150 households benefitted from this project. They received basic supplies such
as rice, cooking oil and eggs. In addition, 30 households from the Church of Thanlyin Town- ship and 20 households from Monastery East Dagon township received food packages.
Rovers volunteering at the quarantine centres also received personal protective equipment such as facial masks and gloves.
Furthermore, Scout teams organized aware- ness campaigns on Covid-19 prevention and precautions as many people were still unaware
of Covid-19 and its effects, and many cannot afford to buy facial masks.
Phyo Thura Win, said “As MoP coordinator,
I am encouraging other coordinators to implement the project and I am sharing my experiences to them. So, hopefully in the future, Myanmar Scout can implement the many other useful and impactful projects.”
