India’s humanitarian aid for cyclone victims arrives

Officials unloading aid sent from India for cyclone-stricken Rakhine.


An Indian navy vessel carrying aid from India for Cyclone-Mora victims in Rakhine State has anchored at the Myanmar International Thilawa Terminal in Yangon yesterday.
The officers of the Myanmar Navy received the aid at the terminal.
The aid, which includes clothing, food and medicines, would be transferred to the authorities in Rakhine State in order to deliver the aid to the victims of Cyclone Mora.
“We will deliver the aid to the victims in Rakhine as soon as possible,” said U Win Shwe, Director of the Yangon Region Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Department.
Cyclone Mora wreaked havoc in Maungtaw Township in northern Rakhine State, leaving transportation and communications in chaos and causing a loss in power to the township as it crossed into Bangladesh early on 30th May.
