Aid including warm clothes and dry rations donated by KBZ’s Brighter Future Myanmar Foundation has reached internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Myaing Gyi Ngu, Kayin State.
The philanthropic foundation went to IDP camps in Kayin State along with Chief Minister of Kayin State Daw Nan Khin Htwe Myint and presented 3,000 pieces of imported warm clothes and 10,080 packs of dried instant noodles.
Villagers from the conflict areas are being sheltered at the camps after they were forced to abandon their farms, cows and homes due to ethnic wars in their village, said Ko Kyaw Moe, a Karen ethnic man from the
Htikanae Village in Hlinebwe Township.
As part of efforts to brace for La Nina in the upcoming winter, the BFM has imported 160,000 warm clothing worth more than US$2million and distributed them to people, including internally displaced persons who are expected to experience very cold weather this coming winter.
The foundation recently donated over 36,500 articles of warm clothing through Mandalay Region Government to the people in areas in Mandalay Region which are also expected to experience very cold weather.
Meanwhile, the BFM’s 3,500 pieces of warm clothing were given to the Naga ethnic people in Lahe, Naga Self-Administrative Zone in mid-August.
The foundation is planning to send warm clothing to the IDPs in Shan State and Kachin State and aged people in Sagaing Region soon. —Thura Lwin (Eco)
