Yoma Group Covid-19 Initiatives
When the Covid-19 stay home notice was issued, Wave Money and Yoma Bank supported Step-in Step-up by ordering masks which were sewn by interns who learnt this new skill while ‘working from home’. More than 20,000 masks were made and distributed by Step-in Step-up interns and associated NGOs.
In conjunction with Yoma Bank, Step-in Step-up donated care packages consisting of medical, healthcare and food supplies to Daing Su and Nyaung villages in Hlaing Thar Yar Township. The donation yielded direct benefits to over 11,000 individuals, most of whom are hand-to-mouth workers and unemployed due to the pandemic.
Along with other donations, Yoma Group donated a tonne of chicken to Step-in Step-up which were distributed throughout the Village Communities reaching more than 25,000 people.
