On the 23 July 2018, Saddle Dam D, part of a hydroelectric dam system under construction in southeast Laos’s Champasak Province collapsed, leading to widespread destruction and homelessness among the local population in neighbouring Attapeu Province.
Firefly Mission working with our Singaporean Laos coordinator; Christopher Yeo and the local partner Lao Foundation for Assisting Poor People Of Lao PDR brought immediate relief to the people in Attapeu Province. Items like blankets, mosquito net, food and water were distributed at the disaster sites. Part of the money were also used to make coffins to bury the dead.
Campers’ Corner from Singapore approached FFM to donate 24 6-men tents and 300 pieces of blankets shipped from Singapore to Laos.
Firefly Mission would like to express its deep gratitude and thanks to all the volunteers who have donated to the relief supplies or supported in the relief distribution.
