Tak donates to flood victims in Myanmar


BANGKOK, 6 August 2015 – People and state officials in Tak province have together delivered donations to Myanmar in an effort to assist victims of the flood disaster.

Tak Governor Somchai Hatayatanti led relevant authorities and local residents in a ceremony to present Myanmar with donated items, including consumer goods, drinking water and canned foods. The items were loaded onto three trucks and handed over to Mr Lui Go U, Governor of Myawaddy, in order to be distributed to flood-affected people in the western part of Myanmar.

The presentation came after Tak province set up a donation center for flood relief between the sister cities of Tak and Myawaddy. Since then, donations have been received constantly from local residents.

Thus far, 12 provinces and regions of Myanmar have been submerged under floodwater after being hammered by torrential rains.
