MANDALAY DIVISION – The refugees from Singu Township, Mandalay Division who were fleeing to Wetlet Township, Sagaing Division because of battles, were supported with rice, oil and money on Saturday (October 7), according to Shwebo District battalion#15.
Each household was reportedly supplied with two 24 pyi rice bags, 10 visses of oil and fruits and crops and 20,000 kyats each to total of 150 refugees.
“We have to rely on each other. Our battalion get help and money from the public if needed and vice versa,” said the battalion commander Bo Kaukyoe of Shwebo District battalion #15.
The refugees came from the village which is close to the village where most junta militias live and so they had to flee since October 3 as there were frequent shootings.
