A donation ceremony was held by artists in Mandalay for the rehabilitation of flooded communities at Nan Ootaik Mawlamyaing Dhamayeiktha Monastery on September 5.
The artists raised K20 million (US$15,500) for members of Pwintauk Village and the surrounding areas of Sedottra Township in Magway Region.
Pwintauk Village is located 13 miles north of Mon Dam in Magway Region. It was hit by high tides which inundated the entire village’s 121 houses, plus a primary school and monastery, forcing residents to be evacuated to higher land.
The group of artists had visited the flood-affected area on August 26, after which time they decided to pool funds for their rehabilitation.
During the ceremony, the artists also donated Waso monk robes.
