The military council’s violent torture and killing of people fleeing the war in Sagaing region. In addition to being faced with arson, the hot and dry April started with the problem of water scarcity. It is difficult to even get drinking water.
In addition, in the villages where the military council entered, electricity transformers, the water pumps were destroyed, it became more difficult to get water. In order to get a bucket of water, they have to go and collect it from small lakes that are about 3 miles away. Those small lakes are also starting to dry up, and the shortage of water is likely to worsen. In some areas, there is a shortage of food and water for cattle and sheep. There are deaths due to lack of food and water. We are trying to dig for water pumps, but we cannot transport the water pump equipment because the military council army is conducting inspections along the road. Only the rain will solve this problem as soon as possible.
