Among the multiplier people, 17 families don’t have farm for their living and they have to do general works for their living with many difficulties. Donated one rice bag and 2.4 kg dried fish to people from 17 families.
They also have place for monastery, but there have no chapel, hall because of is just only beginning for them. We have to talk at temporary shelter. Suggested them to go with the god for their lives and give some money to the kids for buying snack. Pe Yone Na Ta La village is a first village of 2017 Rakhine tour.
