With the establishment of a K100 million fund for disaster preparedness in Taninthayi Region, there are now 12 regions and states that have been provided for in this way by the KBZ’s Brighter Future Myanmar Foundation.
Chief Minister of Taninthayi Region Dr Le Le Maw accepted the donation at the ceremony to establish the fund for preparedness and quick response to disasters held at the office of the regional government yesterday in Dawei.
Daw Phyu Mar Aung, In-charge of KBZ Bank-branch in Dawei, handed over K100 million to the government on behalf of the BFM.
From June 2016, BFM has set up the fund in Kachin, Kayah, Chin, Rakhine and Shan states, and Magway, Sagaing, Bago, Ayeyawady, Mandalay and Taninthayi regions to allow authorities to better respond to disasters.
BFM and other philanthropic groups carried out evacuation and relief operations in areas which were badly hit by floods and landslides last year. They did, however, face delays in sending relief aid to some areas due to poor infrastructure.
