Burma Water Crisis 2010
People inside Burma are facing water crisis and junta is ignoring the plight of Burmese people. We would never even dream of water crisis would happen in Burma. But Burma is facing it now and junta is ignoring the plight of Burmese people. Burmese people are helping ourselves and please help us to alleviate the suffering of Burmese people inside Burma.

Burma enjoys tropical weather with three seasons namely rainy season during which we got heavy rain especially in monsoon, winter with moderate cold and summer with mild temperature. Rivers, streams, creeks, fresh water lakes and ponds can be found everywhere in Burma. Tropical forests were once deeply covered in Kachin, Chin, Shan, Karean, Arakan, Pa-gue, Saninsarri and Sagying divisions. Since military regime came to power, trees were cutting down irresponsibly. The effect of climate change due to deforestation is now causing drought resulting in water drying up of ponds, lakes, wells, underground water and record level of water low in rivers. Addition cyclone Nargis destroyed natural eco-system and which added up the man-made disaster.
It is the Burmese traditional beliefs that under bad rulers the people suffer due to the bad karma of the bad kings. If we look at the glimpse of Burma in recent years, we can see the bad disaster are prevailing such as
• 2008 Nargis hit Burma killing more than 250, 000 people
• 2008 rats infested which caused famine
• 2009 fire broke out most of the places in Burma
• 2010 water shortages in most of the places in Burma
These natural disasters can be translated as the signs which are indicating that (according to the Burmese beliefs) there will definitely be change in Burma. Than Shwe led military regime including Thein Sein’s USDP will soon be outgoing and Daw Aung San Suu Kyi led legitimate leaders will be ruling the country very soon in Burma.
