“We haven’t received assistance from either the authorities or international organisations, we can so can only priorities feeding and looking after ourselves. We haven’t got round to sorting out suitable shelters. We just don’t have the money, and it’s really difficult” he said.
It has been reported that the U Zin Thabarwanaddi from the Mayu Region Charitable Group will donate 1.5 million kyat to the camp leader, with the proceeds going towards building suitable shelters in Kaing Gyi IDP camp.
Also in other areas of
