Ethnic armed organizations -EAOs donated cash to flood affected people through the Peace Commission yesterday.
Representatives of the Wa Special Region-2, on behalf of EAOs, handed over K436.68 million to the Peace Commission at the National Reconciliation and Peace Centre (NRPC) in Yangon.
Speaking at the ceremony, Peace Commission Chair Dr Tin Myo Win said it was a noble donation because it supported the right things to real people in need at the right time.
As for now, ethnic people are giving their special aid for the flood affected ethnic people in Myanmar and that means the same family members are helping each other. Whatever the differences seen in the family, they have the same goal, peace. In building trust, understanding and friendship, helping each other can really work towards peace, said the Peace Commission Chair. Next, head of representatives of Wa Special Region-2 U Nyi Yann explained the aims of the donation and donated Ks 436.68 million to the Chairperson of the Peace Commission and a certificate of honour was given back to donor U Nyi Yann.
Member of the Union Peace Commission’s Peace assistant group U Moe Zaw Oo said to the media that, “We have arranged to make donations in Kayin State, Mon State, Taninthayi and Bago regions because these regions were affected by the floods severely. This is the first organization which has donated cash assistance for flood affected people to the Union Peace Commission. The reason they came to donate at the commission is because they are all ethnic kin.”
There will be much more benefits than usual as ethnic people are donating for the ethnic people affected by floods in Mon State, Kayin State and Taninthayi region and it can be said that unity plus friendship were seen between the ethnics on the road to peace, he added. Also present at the ceremony were, Vice Chairperson of the Union Peace Commission U Thein Zaw and members of the Secretariat of the UPDJC Lt-Gen U Khin Zaw Oo (Retd), U Naing Ngan Lin, Dr. Aung TunThet, U Hla Maung Shwe and representatives led by U Nyi Yann and U San Shwe from Wa Special Region (2).
