A coordination meeting to provide food and aid to people fleeing conflict in Paletwa Tsp, Chin State, was held at the State Cabinet meeting hall in Sittway yesterday.
Dr Win Myat Aye, Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement, first delivered opening remarks where he highlighted the urgent need to send aid through Kyauktaw, Sittway in Rakhine State to Paletwa as infrastructure issues in Chin State can delay timely delivery.
He said they have arranged to provide monthly supplies of basic food for IDPs based on received statistics. He added that they are constructing temporary shelters for IDPs in Rakhine State as well. He urged attendees to discuss collaboration with the Rakhine State government to discover the best route to provide aid to Paletwa.
Next, Chin State Chief Minister U Salai Lian Luai talked on the importance of supporting people fleeing from conflict areas and flood areas, how his constituents have to purchase rice from Rakhine, and cooperation to ensure better transportation of the basic commodity.
Following this, Deputy Minister U Soe Aung reviewed MoSWRR’s donation of three months’ worth of rations, children’s school uniforms and tarpaulin sheets, the Ministry of Border Affairs’ donation of two months’ worth of rations and stipends for students of the Border Ethnic Youth Development Training School, and the Chin State cabinet and local residents’ proposed support.
The attendees then discussed on possible future cooperation on the matter. — MNA  (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
