Karenni Point 5 project is a project that aims to equip the revolutionary forces in Karenni with 50MG caliber machine guns to resist the junta council’s aerial attacks.
The goal of the project is to raise 400,000 USD. Only 20 percent of the project has been achieved on the 14th day of the project.
“If 100,000 people contribute 4 dollars each, this amount is easy to achieve. Although the project time will end soon, we have only achieved 20 percent of the project. It will be completed, if 100,000 people contribute 10,000 MMK each. So if we base it on 10,000 MMK per person, we can assume only 20,000 out of the required 100,000 people participated,” said the person responsible for the project.

“Now, we are fleeing and we lost our houses. Our misfortunes will end only if Karenni escapes. So, I participated in the project,” said an IDP who participated in the project.
The members of Revolutionary Forces and many celebrities have also urged to participate in the project.
Karenni Point 5 project period was set from April 23 to May 13 and there are 6 days left before the campaign ends.
