Thailand upgrades monastery’s lavatory facilities, hands over aid for flood victims

P1070746---- 6Nagahlainggu Monastery near Yangon’s Kaba-Aye Pagoda has had its lavatory and surrounding facilities renovated by the Royal Thai Embassy, with Ambassador Mr Pisanu Suvanajata saying the upgrade is aimed at promoting friendship between the two countries.
“Since March this year, the upgrade of the lavatory within the compound of the monastery has been carried out at a cost of 6 million Thai baht (around K210 million) paid by the embassy and Thai community,” the ambassador said at the handover ceremony Sunday.
“The facilities equipped with Thailand’s state-of-the-art technology are specially designed for disabled and elderly people,” he added.
At the ceremony, Thailand also handed over donations for flood victims to the Abbot Sayadaw of the monastery, who received 600,000 baht (more than K21 million), rice and food donated by Thai monks and the Thai community.
“The fund and relief aid will go to victims in far-flung villages,” said Abbot Sayadaw.
In addition, the Royal Thai Government donated relief supplies worth around 20 million baht (around K700 million) from 14 trucks, and plans to make further significant contributions for rehabilitation of those victims, Ambassador Mr Pisanu Suvanajata said.
