A peace group in wheelchairs called “Holding for Peace” which left Myitkyina in Kachin State on February 15 arrived in Mandalay on February 23 at 1 pm.

The peace group is currently staying at Nursery School No. 1, Chanayetharzan Township, Mandalay and will shortly set off for the capital, Nay Pyi Taw, hoping to arrive on February 28.

This peace group held a peace talk show with entertainment programmes at Manaw Yaman ground on February 23. There are 10 vision-impaired people who performed, as well as half a dozen differently abled persons who gave talks.
