A programme to donate basic foodstuffs for trishaw pullers was organized at the Insein Township’s city development committee office yesterday.
The donation programme is aimed at giving the people with no regular income assistances during the Thingyan holidays, which is a very important period for controlling the COVID-19.
U Zaw Naing, an organizer of the donation programme, said “This is our own supporting for the basic persons. We, friends, organized the donation activity. We made donations for the trishaw pullers as it is easy to collect the population of trishaw pullers. We stated our donation programme in
South Oakalapa Township on 7 April.”
Yesterday’s programme donated basic foodstuffs including rice, cooking oil, onion, eggs, and canned fishes, and medicines for 600 trishaw pullers in Insein Township.
Hluttaw representatives and departmental officials helped the donors not to become a public gathering.
A similar event was held in North Oakalapa Township in the evening.
On 9 April, similar donation programmes will be organized in Hline, Hlinethaya, and Dala townships.
The donation programmes in Thakayta and Thingyangyun townships will be organized.—Zaw Gyi (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
