The Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement gave subsidies yesterday to displaced people who are now in Sittwe rescue camps due to fear of ARSA extremist terrorist attacks.
U Kyaw Min, director of the Rakhine State office, said, “The Ministry is now providing subsidies to all rescue camps in Sittway — rice, cooking oil, beans and salt for the adequacy of provisions. Most people from Maungtaw rescue camps are returning home, while in Sittway most are coming from nearby villages and distant areas to take shelter here.
So, the Ministry is supporting subsidies to rescue camps again.
Due to the 25 August ARSA extremist terrorist attacks in Maungtaw, the Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement is supporting necessary subsidies to the camps. Yesterday evening, the Ministry continued to support the remaining portion left to be donated, to 1,053 people from 315 families.
The donation included 77 rice bags, 157 viss of cooking oil and 75 viss of salt. The team included U Kyaw Min, director of the Rakhine State office, U Aye Min Thu, principal of Myanmar Natural Disaster Training School, and responsible personnel from the Ministry.
