As a result of extraordinary heavy rain and the opening of 6 different dams upstream, Moei River went all time high during rainy season this year and made our village of Noh Bo an island, putting several houses completely under water. It was counted as a 100 years flood and in Noh Bo`s approximately 60 years history, no one have ever experienced something like this. We supported families with money for buildingmaterials to rebuild their houses and get necessities they lost.
