The Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement launched its 4th and 5th activities to provide cash aid to expecting women and children below two years in Maungtaw yesterday.
Under the maternal and child cash transfer programme, the ministry’s officials and leaders of the villages presented Ks90,000 for six months to each expecting woman and children below two years from Rakhine, Islam and Hindu communities in villages in Maungtaw Township. A total of 166 pregnant women and children from the areas received the cash assistance. Over 113.7 million kyats will be provided to 1,264 pregnant women and children next three days, according to the ministry.
