Following the heavy monsoon rains that flooded villages in the Southern, Eastern and Central parts of Myanmar, Ooredoo Myanmar has reached out to affected communities, providing emergency supply bags that include food and aid provisions.
The company has immediately sent teams to Shwegyin Township in the Bago Region, Bilin Township in Mon State and Hpa-An in Kayin State, where many people were forced to leave their homes and seek shelter elsewhere.
The emergency supply bags worth MMK 15 million were distributed to 1,900 households and included rice, cooking oil, instant noodles, canned fish and dry rations that are enough for three days.
Vikram Sinha, Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo Myanmar, said: “We are saddened by this natural disaster and concerned about the affected areas. As an active player in our local communities, we have immediately responded to the situation, providing much needed help and support to the flood victims.”
Last month, Ooredoo Myanmar has helped 451 households in Mawlamyaing and Ye in Mon State by providing food and aid provisions for flood victims.
