MUSLIM ORGANIZATIONS GAVE AID TO ROHINGYAS

Yangon – Committee of Five Muslim organizations consisting of community organizations, NGOs, students and Muslim Businessman move quickly to provide flood relief in Myanmar, including by distributing direct aid to areas of flood victims worth 120 million Kyat (about 1.3 billion dollars).

Secretary of the Committee, U Tin Maung Than said, some Muslim volunteers in charge of providing food aid and medicines to residents in need.

“We donate without distinction, anybody who require emergency assistance,” he said last week, as reported by the Myanmar Times.

Secretariat office until now continues to receive donations from various circles, and some mosques also raise funds to be channeled through the joint committee.

“Our goal is to save people who are at risk and give them what they need,” said U Tin Maung, who is also Secretary General of the Islamic Religious Council of Myanmar.

Flooding due to storm in Myanmar also affects about 21,000 Rohingya.

Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR (The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees) said the floods override camps housing thousands of Muslim Rohingya in Arakan (Rakhine) state.

“They are now evacuated to safer areas,” said UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards told Press TV on Tuesday (11/8).

The Myanmar government has set Rakhine, Chin, Sagaing and Magway as natural disaster zones.

Arakan (Rakhine) is an area home to nearly 3.2 million people, including about 140,000 Rohingya.

Note: changes have been made, MINA is not responsible fro these.
