Commander-in-Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing and wife Daw Kyu Kyu Hla attended the 1st handing over ceremony of Magway’s advanced housings for war veterans.
In the ceremony, the Senior General spoke on the bravery of the war veterans who sacrificed their lives for their country and the efforts made by the nation in accordance with the law to grant the veterans with their well deserved rights and opportunities.
The current location for the housing was chosen with easy access to water and electricity, and accessible routes to schools, hospitals and paths to job opportunities in mind.
A lot was invested in the construction of the housing for war veterans and their families so it is hoped that individuals do not exploit the housings for their personal businesses.

Next the Senior General, his wife and entourage engaged in warm discussions with the war veterans and their families.
The housing for war veterans in Magway is the 5th one to be constructed with housings in Nay Pyi Taw, Mandalay, Yangon and various others constructed before and with a total of 750 housing buildings allotted war veterans and their families.
Later, the Senior General and his wife visited the Tatmadaw Hospital in Magway and warmly greeted the patients and their families.
