It is learnt from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that in view of the close friendship and cooperation that exist between Myanmar and Nepal, the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar is providing humanitarian assistance to the victims affected by devastating earthquake that hit Nepal on 25 April 2015.
The humanitarian assistance from Myanmar is scheduled to be delivered to Nepal in two consignments by the Myanmar Air Force’s Y-8 cargo plane. The first batch of humanitarian aid was sent on 1 May from Yangon to Kathmandu with 6 tons of relief goods consisting of purified water, instant noodles, soft drinks and juices, assorted types of biscuits, dried vermicelli and clothing donated by the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and 100 robes for Buddhist monks donated by Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services of Myanmar. The second batch consisting of 5 tons of rice, beans and pulses and 1 ton of clothing will leave for delivery from Nay Pyi Taw depending on Nepal’s capacity to schedule the landing of foreign humanitarian planes.
Myanmar’s humanitarian aid will be delivered to Nepal by representatives from the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement, and the Republic of the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (UMFCCI) who will travel along with the Y-8 cargo plane. The Director-General of the National Reconstruction of Nepal accepted the donations from Myanmar.
