Emergency food supplies and relief items valued one million Baht from Thai Red Cross Society were shipped by Royal Thai Air Force from Thailand to Myanmar on 23 May 2023. This shipment was a part of humanitarian assistance to people affected by Cyclone Mocha in western Rakhine state.
Dr. Apichart Chinwanno, Assistant Secretary General for External Relations, represented Thai Red Cross Society in the handover event with Thailand Prime Minister, representatives from Myanmar Government and supportive organizations at Government House of Thailand on 22 May 2023.
According to several news agencies, numbers of casualties and injuries have risen sharply during the few days after the cyclone Mocha hit Myanmar on 14 May 2023. The cyclone has devastated many towns, communities, and internally displaced people’s camps in Rakhine state. More than ten thousand people were evacuated from the cyclone affected areas.
Sincerely thanks to the volunteers who supported Thai Red Cross Society in packing relief goods for the victims in Myanmar. Monetary donations are also welcome from the public via the account below until 31 May 2023.
