Myanmar artists help survivors of Nepal quake

Sung Tin Par and other artists come together to donate their money to the Nepal-Myanmar Friendship Association to help survivors in quake-hit Nepal.

Artist Sung Tin Par and Dream Lover band made a donation of Ks1.6 million (US$1,600) to the Nepal-Myanmar Friendship Association to help survivors of Nepal’s devastating earthquake. The sum was raised during the artist’s solo concert held last Saturday in Yangon. 

“During my solo concert, Ko A Nge and his wife, Pauk Si (Aye Wutt Yee Thaung) and Sweet Wutt Yee Thaung, and Ma Kabyar [Bwe Hmuu] showcased their benevolence. [Nepal] is our neighbouring country so we want to help the victims who are suffering as a result of the earthquake. As we have received this money for our artistic work and other fellow artists, we’ve decided to donate the sum for this cause,” said Sung Tin Par.

“It feels great to have been given the chance to participate in this donation scheme. I want to pray for all the earthquake victims to be free from danger and suffering,” she added.

“In our country, the Nepal-Myanmar Friendship Association has carried out activities in the past. We’re arranging this programme so that we can help as much as we can. We will arrange for other artists and donors from across the country to participate in this donation programme,” said composer Win Min Htwe, who’s well connected with the Nepal-Myanmar Friendship Association.
