US lifts ban on Myanmar charity work

Viet Nam,Diplomacy, Thu, 19 Apr 2012 IANS

Yangon, April 19 (IANS) The US has lifted a ban on charity works by non-profit groups in Myanmar after the country successfully held its parliamentary elections earlier this month.

 

The US treasury department has allowed humanitarian and religious organisations to carry out charity works in the country, the Mizzima News reported Thursday.

 

The move will allow US citizens to donate money in humanitarian projects in Myanmar, including disaster relief works, refugee and sanitation programmes.

 

However, US sanctions on commercial transactions, such as import of Myanmerese gemstones and other goods, are still in place.

 

Pro-democracy campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy had registered a thumping victory in the April 1 by-elections by winning 43 of the 44 seats.
