ALUZINC sheets donated from by the People’s Government of Yunnan Province, China, for house roofing in Rakhine State arrived in Mandalay on Friday.
A total of 200,000 aluzinc sheets measuring seven feet by 3 feet were transported from China on 24 October by truck.
They are currently being stored at the government’s warehouses, according to the
Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement.
“An official ceremony to hand over the aluzinc sheets to the Myanmar government is set to be held in the second week of December in Nay Pyi Taw,” said U Soe Naing , Permanent Secretary of the ministry.
The donation comes after the meeting between President U Thein Sein and the Communist party secretary of the Yunnan Province in Kunming during the president’s  visit to the 70th Anniversary of the Second World War.
Heavy rain from June to early November hit 14 regions and states including Sagaing and Magway regions, Rakhine and Chin states, displacing more than 1,692,000.
Aid from local and foreign donors for the people in flood-hit areas have been distributed and cash (kyat and dollars) have been collected for spending on reconstruction.
