Kanbawza Brighter Future Myanmar (BFM) Foundation donated Ks50 million to each flood-hit region and state to help those affected by the floods, as part of its recent pledge to donate Ks1,000 million as relief aid to victims in the country.
Representatives of the BFM in Mawlamyine and Dawei handed over Ks50 million each to the Mon State and Taninthayi Region governments yesterday, and followed up handing the same amount to the Kayin State government on 29 July.
“The donation from BFM would be spent on rice, cooking oil, medicines and other necessities for the people displaced by the floods,” said Mon State Chief Minister Dr. Aye Zan, as he accepted the donation at the office of the Mon State government yesterday. Meanwhile, Taninthayi Region Chief Minister Daw Lae Lae Maw also accepted the cash from the representatives of BFM, expressing her gratefulness for the donation to the flood victims in the state.
“We will arrange to send aid, including rice, cooking oil, and dried food to over 1,000 flood victims from over 200 households taking shelter at temporary relief camps,” said the chief minister.
The people in Taninthayi experienced a flood caused by overflowing water from the Taninthayi River some 20 days ago. BFM’s donation will also go to Rakhine State and Bago Region. Since it was founded, BFM has contributed over Ks144 billion so far towards regional development and humanitarian aid in regions and states.—Thura Lwin (Eco)
