The recent armed attacks in the Muse area of northern Shan State forced locals and staff members residing in Mongkoe township and Pansang
(Kyugok) to take shelter in a neighboring country, which caused some hardship.
Yesterday morning, residents and staff working for the department of the general administration received monetary aid for their hardships at a ceremony held at the assembly hall of township general administration department.
At the ceremony, U Kyaw Kyaw Tun, head of the district general administration department, provided Ks100,000 each for 5 families and other commodities —
rice, cooking oil, noodles, blankets and other items, amounting to Ks757,000 kyats, with Ks240,000 for 12 staff members and Ks100,000 for 10 families provided by
U Kyaw Thaung, the head of township general administration department — Ks1597,000 in total. Afterward, displaced staff and their families were entertained with lunch at the dining room of the township office.—District IPRD
