Yangon, Myanmar — September 28th, 2015
IGT, the largest tower company operating in Myanmar, has announced an immediate support towards rebuilding the areas affected by the recent devastating floods across the country. Under the guidance of IGT board members and executive management team, and in line with the company CSR strategy, IGT has initiated a special project theme named “IGT FOR MYANMAR” to meet the immediate needs of those affected by this natural disaster.

IGT has so far donated a total of MMK 30 millon across these affected regions to provide immediate support which includes critical items for daily needs such as proteins/canned foods, rice, dry fish, water, torch lights, etc. for the affected people in these regions more than 6,000 affected people have benefited from this program.
