Flood Relief

It is sad to note that Myanmar experienced several disasters over the years.

They include

  • Cyclone Nargis
    where the higher authorities not only withheld the timely warnings, but also tried to prevent — to a large measure — the relief support (from national and international organizations)
  • Drought
  • Flooding (for several years with increasing damage)

We are proud to note that most Myanmar tried to help the disaster victims in their own ways.

There have been many fund raising events for the disasters.

The following is a Sampling.

2015

U Wynn Htain Oo (M72) and his friends tried to help the victims of “Yay Bei Dukkha”.

Bagyee U Myo Myint (M74) sold 16 paintings and donated K 5 Lakhs to the “Relief Fund”

ကြၽန္ေတာ့္မိတ္ေဆြမ်ားက ေစတနာေမတၱာထားၿပီး ဝိုင္းဝန္း
ကူညီလႉဒါန္းၾကလို႔ ကြၽန္ေတာ့္ေရေဆးပန္းခ်ီကား ၁၆ ကားကို
မေန႔ကတစ္ရက္ထည္းနဲ႔အျပည့္အစုံေရာင္းလိုက္ႏိုင္ပါတယ္။
ရေငြအားလုံး (က်ပ္ ငါးသိန္း)ကို မိတ္ေဆြႀကီး ဦးဝင္းထိန္ဦးရဲ႕
ဘဏ္စာရင္းထဲကိုမနက္ျဖန္ထည့္သြင္းလႊဲေျပာင္းေပးလိုက္ႏိုင္
ပါေတာ့မယ္။ဦးဝင္းထိန္ဦးရဲ႕စီစဥ္မႈနဲ႔ေရေဘးဒုကၡခံစားေနရ
သူမ်ားထံလႉဒါန္းျဖည့္ဆည္းေနတာကိုကြၽန္ေတာ္ပါဝင္ႏိုင္ၿပီမို႔
ေက်နပ္ပီတိျဖစ္ရပါတယ္။
ပန္းခ်ီကားဝယ္ၿပီးလႉခ်င္သူကကြၽန္ေတာ္ေမွ်ာ္လင့္တာထက္
ပိုေနတာေတြ႔ရေတာ့အံ့ဩဝမ္းသာၿပီးေနာက္ထပ္တစ္ေၾကာ့
ျပန္ႀကိဳးစားဖို႔ပင္စိတ္ကူးမိပါတယ္။
အားလုံးက်န္းမာ႐ႊင္လန္းၿပီးေဘးအႏၱရာယ္အေပါင္းမွကင္းေဝး
ၾကပါေစ။
