Tehan Community in Kalay Township, Kalamyo, Myanmar is a large, impoverished slum-community where the people experience many daily hardships. Three tribes live in this area, Mizo, Falam, and Haka.

They have been suffering with a major water crisis since April. Their wells have dried up and they have no water. The government is providing a small amount of help with water and the church is providing emergency water that is trucked-in. It is only a temporary fix and it is not enough to serve all the people. Although it is the dry season, many think the potential reason for the local wells totally drying-up is major flooding which occurred in 2015 which took out so many trees and vegetation.
