Villagers displaced by the Yeywa Dam scratch out a living in a new community. The village has no water supply nearby so villagers have to take an ox cart to the Myitnge River a mile away. There is no irrigation, no shade and many familes from this ancient community refused to settle here, destroying a community that is hundreds of years old. The government installed electric pylons but the villagers are unable to afford the subscription fee.
