Helping flood victims in Myanmar Print

In August, Israel’s embassy in Myanmar donated over 12.5 million kyat worth of relief goods to flood victims from Thayarwaddy, where over 2,000 people were evacuated to 12 rescue camps.

Ambassador Daniel Zonshine visited the area and donated dry noodles, hygiene kits, mosquito nets and medicines on behalf of the people and the State of Israel. He also visited the Tharyarwaddy District Hospital to donate medicines for the flood victims.

The ambassador noted that Israel will continue helping the rehabilitation of flood victims of Myanmar. Up to 150,000 people have been displaced or had their livelihoods affected by the terrible flood.
