Five flood relief camps to be built for Magway villagers

PAKOKKU- Five flood relief camps will be built for locals in the villages along the embankments of Chindwin and Ayeyawady Rivers in Pakokku and Yezagyo Townships, Magway Region this month, according to the Natural Disaster Management Committee.
        The Directorate of Meteorology and Hydrology announced that the water level of Ayeyawady River would reach above the danger level near Pakokku Township this month.
        That’s why aiming for convenience of locals’ accommodations during the flooding, flood relief camps were built in advance. As Pakokku Township has to suffer flooding of Ayeyawady River, two flood relief camps will be built near the villages along the embankment of Ayeyawady River. About 400 flood victims can shelter in each flood relief camp.
        “In Pakokku Township, we are going to build two flood relief camps near the villages which had to suffer the flooding. Moreover, we are going to help in transferring when the flooding takes place. We will also provide food and health care services for elderly and pregnant women as well as emergency toilets will be built. The flood relief camps will be built in the second week of July,” said Officer Nay Win from Natural Disaster Management Department in Pakokku District.
        Likewise, three flood relief camps will be built in Gukyi Monastery, Hsingyoe Village at the confluence of Chindwin and Ayeyawady Rivers and Pukham village-tract in Yezagyo Township.
        “Last year flooding caused the remove of houses from the villages. By opening of relief camps, the flood victims quickly sheltered at the camps. Some had to shelter as a difficult. For the flood victims, it is very convenient for building of relief camps,” said Kyaw Thu Thu from Yezagyo Township.
        As Chindwin and Ayeyawady Rivers exceeded over the danger levels last year, thousands of locals relocated to the safer places.
