  7. 7. FIND THE SIX BOXES You can hear them halfway down the street. Above the roar of the traffic and the chatter of the tea shop comes the column of young people, collection tins in hand, calling for donations for the victims of Myanmar’s severe flooding. “We get together once a week, usually for shopping and eating and playing games on our phones,” said 18-year-old student Aung Min Hein. “But not this time. This is the time to show our solidarity with others.” He wears a jacket of plastic bottles to signify a life jacket, and a large bag to accept money. His group, called Donation Wave, has already collected K1,500,000, but aim for a further K500,000 from their street-walking tours. The money will go to flood victims in Hinthada District, Ayeyarwady Region. They are one group among many in a spontaneous volunteer movement that has inspired people of every age and profession. Myanmarflood.info lists more than 100 groups aiding flood victims. People are responding to the volunteers and handing over more money than they thought they could spare. Underage tea shop waiters, trishaw drivers and housemaids used to stretching a kyat as far as they can are dropping folded

  9. 9. FIND THE SIX BOXES Along with socializing, student Aung Min Hein and about 20 of his friends founded Donation Wave and started working for charity when he finished high school in 2013. They made donations at the pagoda on weekends. Now they walk from Sule Pagoda to Hledan Junction on Pyay Road asking for donations for flood victims. Flooding caused by Cyclone Komen began on July 30. The government said yesterday that 39 people had lost their lives over the past week, and more than 200,000 people had been affected by flooding in 12 out of the country’s 14 states and regions. The students, dependent on their parents for pocket money, can’t afford to give much themselves, but they have time and energy, and they can walk, said one 18-year-old member. “We walk, we shout, and we ask for money. We spend a couple of hours doing this, but we’re not tired,” said Su Su, a student at West Yangon Technological University. “This is nothing compared with what people in the disaster areas have to put up with. They need our help.” She rattles her basket at a passer-by. He drops in a K10,000 note. Su Su smiles broadly, says thanks and resumes her cry for more donations.
