Burma health clinic funded by Jersey destroyed in cyclone

A Burma health clinic built with money donated from Jersey has been destroyed by a cyclone which has devastated the country, and killed more than 200 people across the continent.

The Health and Hope training centre was built in 2011, with the help of funds from the Jersey Overseas Aid Commission.

What the centre used to look like

The centre, also known as Jersey Hall, has trained 834 Community Health Workers from 551 villages across southern China and Rakhine State.

Elders in the village of Lailenpi say this is the worst storm damage they have ever seen - 37 homes have also been ruined.

The Health and Hope centre has been destroyed by Cyclone Mora

Heavy rain is hampering efforts to rebuild and provide shelter for those who have lost their homes.

Cyclone Mora hit Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Northeast India last month, bringing winds of 75mph.

The Jersey Hall helps with the distribution of food relief and aid supplies and also runs summer camps for children, youth conferences and Traditional Birth Attendant training.
