Ooredoo Myanmar has provided flood victims in Bago Region and Mon and Kayin States with relief materials after heavy rain lashed the southern, eastern and central parts of Myanmar recently.
Many people were forced to flee their homes because flooding affected vast swathes of land. In view of this, the Ooredoo Myanmar family has reached out to flood-affected areas to send food and aid provisions for the victims, the company has said in a statement.
Accordingly, Ooredoo Myanmar has gone to Shwegyin township in Bago Region, Bilin township in Mon State and Hpa-An in Kayin State to express concern about the flood situation and show its care for the people, the statement notes.
Ooredoo has provided the flood victims with emergency supply bags that include rice and other rations such as cooking oil, instant noodles and canned fish, collectively worth about Burmese kyat (MMK) 15mn and covering nearly 1,900 households.
The food in the bag donated by Ooredoo will address the food requirements of the flood victims for three days, the company has stressed.
Vikram Sinha, CEO of Ooredoo Myanmar, said: “We would like to express our great concern about the flooding and devastation of the country caused by heavy rain and we want to help. We stand firmly with our three core values – caring, connecting and challenging. Therefore, we took up the challenge to provide relief for the flood victims. We connected with them to show our concern and care for them through our immediate support.”
Last month, Ooredoo Myanmar connected with 451 households in Mawlamyaing and Ye in Mon State to send food and aid provisions for flood victims.
