The victims of the devastating August 9 landslide in Mon State are struggling to rebuild their lives more than a month later.
The disaster left 74 people dead and dozens of homes and farms destroyed, and although the government has promised compensation and new land for the survivors, the process is slow, and many people will be forced to resettle far from their communities.
This week, in partnership with Mon News Agency, Doh Athan visits Phyu Gon Village in Paung Township, where people are struggling to move forward after losing everything.
