Food donation trips

In the aftermath of cyclone Nargis, Saydanar concentrated on supplying people in the affected areas with food. A large part of the rice paddies were destroyed by the cyclone or contaminated with salt water from the tidal wave. Saydanar organized or participated in 10 food delivery trips to the delta region. We distributed mainly rice but also potatoes, onions, garlic, purified drinking water, beans, oil, salt, eggs, clothes, household items and medicine. The delivery trips were often arduous and dangerous and the situation in the delta remained difficult with onset of the monsoon rains. Below you can find pictures of the situation in the Ayyerwaddy Delta at the time.
