Budget: € 60000
Looptijd: 2020-07-07 - 2020-10-30


Hpakant Township, in Kachin state experienced heavy rainfall for several days, then early morning on 2 July 2020, at 7:30 am local time, rainwater caused saturation of the soil at the jade mining area in Wai Khwar village, Seik Mu village tract and causing an erosion of land and mudslide down to the jade mine pit. The mudslide further triggered a formation of large wave of mud sweeping miners who were working in the mine pit, burying many of them under the thick layer of mud. Many of the miners were of daily-waged internal migrants from different parts of Myanmar
