Kanbawza Bank’s Brighter Future Myanmar foundation (BFM) is at it again, donating Ks100m for Sagaing Region, one of the worst flooded regions in Myanmar last year. Sagaing Region Chief Minister Dr Myint Naing and regional ministers received the cash donation from KBZ’s BFM yesterday.
“There were delays last year in delivering aid to areas due to poor infrastructure in the region last year, so the foundation’s chairperson Daw Nang Land Kham arranged for the establishment of the BFM fund in order to better deliever aid in the future,” said U Soe Tin Maung Zaw of BFM at the ceremony yesterday.
The foundation recently donated to Rakhine and Chin States, as well as Magwe Region recently.
Meanwhile, as part of efforts to brace for La Niña in the country, the foundation has arranged to provide 120,000 sets of warm clothing to people including internally displaced persons who are expected to experience serious cold weather this coming winter.
