Yangon – The Republic of Korea has donated US$300,000 to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in Myanmar to help communities still suffering from the effects of severe floods and landslides earlier this year.

The money will be used to buy 400 metric tons of rice, enough for two months of relief food for 15,000 people in the worst flood-affected townships of Chin state. The rice will be purchased from local vendors, which will help to revitalize agriculture and the economy in the region.
