Cash contributions, donations provided to elderly film artistes

Since 16 October, the Myanmar Motion Picture Organization (MMPO) has been giving out cash contributions and donations to the elderly artistes who are unable to attend the 46th Respect Paying Ceremony to Aged Film Artistes, according to MMPO Vice-President U Aye Kyu Lay.
Only 30 senior film artistes could attend the 103rd Myanmar Motion Picture Day and 46th Respect Paying Ceremony to Aged Film Artistes held on 13 October, due to space constraints and health conditions, while no more than 100 senior film artistes were able to attend.
“Due to space constraints and the fact that there are some elderly parents who cannot sit for a long time and have to come in wheelchairs, we paid respect to only 30 people on the day of the ceremony. That’s why we are handing out cash contributions and donations to the remaining 100 senior artistes today. Plans are being made to visit the homes of elderly artistes who are bedridden and unable to come to the ceremony due to ill health. As of this morning, nearly 50 elderly artistes absent in ceremony have come,” U Aye Kyu Lay continued.
There are more than 140 elderly artists who are eligible for the ceremony this year, and the MMPO is contributing K400,000 in cash and about 70 medical supplies to each of the elderly artistes who are unable to attend the ceremony. — ASH/CT
