Amar village in Pyapon District was badly damaged by Cyclone Nargis and “Sitagu Team” leading by SITAGU SAYARDAW was in that place for rehabilitation works.
Amar hospital was reconstructed all the way from shambles to workable condition. Sitagu Team provides them with building materials, medical equipments, medicines and medical team. Doctors from Sitagu Sanga Hospital ( Sagaing ) are voluntarily stationed in the hospital and render their utmost medical assistance to desperate and needed people in disastrous area.
But now the latest situation in that hospital was very shameful as Union Solidarity and Development Association (USDA) members and local authority plus military personnel are taking control the hospital management and whoever seeking medical assistance are to pay and donate for the services. Power generator for hospital donated by Sitagu team was taken away and installed in the home of local USDA leader.
Please note that all residents of that area are in the state of refugees and they have nothing in the hand to pay for medical service. Sitagu donation is to provide free medical services but USDA tries to make a profit out of it.
