Deputy Minister for Construction U Kyaw Linn and Rakhine State government’s Transport Minister U Aung Kyaw Zan inspected the camps for the returnee families in Maungtaw district on 11 August.
They first visited Ohhtane camp where the construction of houses has fully completed. The deputy minister asked to continue the remaining works on building roads inside the camp.
A total of 122 houses— 72 units by UEHRD and 50 units by Japan— have been set up together with one unit of community centre for the displaced local ethnic people.
The deputy minister and party then proceeded to Kyeinchaungtaung camp, and looked into constructions of the houses and the entrance road to the camp. A total of 211 houses— 100 units by UEHRD, 60 units by India and 51 units by Japan— and a community centre are ready to reaccept the refugees.
As the deputy minister and party arrived at the Hla Pho Khaung transit centre, the supervising officer of the facility presented about the construction of new buildings and the reconstruction of buildings damaged by strong winds this year. They also looked into the plans for feeding and healthcare services for the refugees at the camp with 623 buildings for 8 households each.
The Hla Pho Khaung transit centre has a total of 1,090 assemble board houses which were donated by China. Among them, 90 units have been erected with concrete water tanks, faucets, toilets and septic tanks. Another 100 unites are ready for installation, and the remaining 900 units will be set up depending on the number of returnees.
The deputy minister and party arrived at Shwezar camp to inspect the houses donated by India for the displaced Hindu people at Thatkalbyin.
