RP contributes to ASEAN's continued humanitarian effort in Myanmar

Manila (23 January) -- The ASEAN Cooperation Fund for Disaster Assistance received a US $ 50,000-donation from the Government of the Republic of the Philippines through the Philippine Embassy in Yangon, Myanmar on Thursday.

The Fund is used for relief and recovery activities of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in cyclone-hit Myanmar.

Dr. Anish Roy, special representative of the Secretary-General of ASEAN, received the contribution on behalf of Dr. Surin Pitsuwan, Secretary-General of ASEAN.

The contribution from the Philippine government is to support ASEAN's continued effort and leadership role in humanitarian assistance in Myanmar.

"We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Government of the Republic of the Philippines for its continued support, which enables ASEAN to reinforce our assistance and commitment to the people of Myanmar affected by Cyclone Nargis," said Dr. Roy.

Contributions made to the ASEAN Cooperation Fund for Disaster Assistance have been utilized to help people recover their livelihoods through community-based early recovery projects in the cyclone-affected areas as well as in disaster risk management and other Nargis-related activities. (PNA) [top]
