The Thai government will today offer Myanmar Bt5 million as financial aid as the country struggles with floods, deputy government spokesman Maj-General Weerachon Sukhonthapati-pak said yesterday according to a 4 August report in The Nation.
Myanmar's ambassador to Thailand will also meet government representatives to provide updates on the flood situation and people's needs, so help can be provided accordingly. 
A donation centre has also been set up at the Myanmar-Thailand border in Chiang Rai province to facilitate the delivery of help to flood victims.
The centre was established through a joint collaboration between the Thai-Myanmar Township Border Committee (TBC) and the Thai-Myanmar Cultural and Economic Council's Chiang Rai office.
