Proceeds from fundraising will be directed to local based community organisations such as Youth Social Force (Myanmar Charitable Youth Association), Free Funeral Service Society (Yangon) providing rice, purified water or water purification tablets, mosquito nets, medicines, seeds and other aid to flood affected communities.
ANU Myanmar Students' Association (ANUMSA) is helping where it can in the rescue and rehabilitation efforts from the devastating and unprecedented flood in the country's history. They aim to raise $10,000 to send to the most affected areas in Myanmar: Chin State, Rakhine State, Sagaing Region and Magway Region.
