The Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement delivered solar panels and accessories to 15 households in Thayetoak Village in Maungtaw Township yesterday, bringing light to villagers who are in need of power.
The supplies came after the Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Dr Win Myat Aye’s visit to the area on 6th and 7th January.
