Cambodia has donated $300K of humanitarian assistance to cyclone-hit Myanmar following the recent natural disaster that killed hundreds of people.

In a June 2 press statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the humanitarian aid package of $300K would support Myanmar’s ongoing efforts to address the impact of the recent calamity of Cyclone Mocha.

It said the cyclone had extensive damage to properties and infrastructure in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.

Myanmar ambassador U Thit Linn Onh accepted the package from ministry secretary of state Nhim Khemara on June 2 at the foreign affairs ministry.

Khemara extended her deepest condolences for the far-reaching effects on the lives and property of the Myanmar people. She hoped Myanmar will swiftly overcome these challenging circumstances.

“The aforementioned compassionate gesture reflects the essence of humanity, forging the bond of friendships and solidarity between Cambodia and Myanmar,” the statement concluded.
