Painting Exhibit for Giri Victims

Rangoon: A five-day painting exhibit will be held in Rangoon, the former capital of Burma, to fundraise for victims of Cyclone Giri in western Burma's Arakan State, report official sources.

"The exhibit, titled 'The Givers', will be held from 25 to 29 April. Our intention is to raise funds for the Giri victims," U Mrat Tun Aung, an exhibitor, said.

In the exhibit, many paintings lined to Cyclone Giri by artists will be shown in a gallery of the culture ministry located on Ko Min Ko Chin Avenue in Bahan Township in Rangoon, the source said.

"We have plans to exhibit some Giri related paintings. We hope the exhibition will help bring people's attention to the cyclone victims when they see the paintings," he said.

In the exhibition, Arakanese as well as artists of other nationalities will show their work.

"Everybody can visit the painting gallery from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm during the exhibit. We will also be selling paintings to consumers, and we will donated the funds to Giri victims after the exhibit is complete," U Mrat said.

Cyclone Giri struck Arakan State in October 2010, but many families in the cyclone-affected areas are still living in poor conditions without homes or adequate food.
