LOCAL migrant people recently moved from temporary shelters in Myitkyina Township to Ngwepyaw Modern Village under the arrangement of local authorities.
As part of its migrant and refugee settlement services, the state government in cooperation with NGOs and INGOs has carried out settlement for those migrants who have fled from their residences as their lives and safety have been threatened.
Nearly 60 families with about 300 populations from seven shelters in the township were settled in the modern village established by the state government.
Kachin State Chief Minister U La John Ngan Hsai encouraged those migrants and clarified the government’s supports and arrangements for them on that day.

With around K10 million funded by the local
government from 2014-2015 budget, 11KVA power lines, two transformers and meter boxes were successfully installed across the region to have access of electricity for all households, one of officials said.
