Dala's Water Woe

Dala is a place of water scarcity which is located across the Yangon river. Residents dig into the ground to reach drinkable water but the ground water is salty and not suitable for their daily consumption. Residents in Dala have to collect water from the ponds near their houses for the daily consumption. There are about 134 water storage ponds in Dala township, which were collected water during rain. Villagers have to collect water from these ponds during the limited times of the day in Summer because the ponds have dried up in hot weather. Although donations come from both the local and international community during the summer, residents still face water scarcity.
