On 14 May 2023, cyclone "Mocha" caused landfall on the Bay of Bengal affecting Myanmar and parts of Bangladesh after intensifying into the equivalent of a category-five storm, pounded through the region at around 209 km/h. It was one the strongest storms to ever hit Myanmar. The Burmese military declared the whole of Rakhine as a natural disaster area. Since, humanitarian aid has reached the people and clean-up operations are underway for the millions of people affected by the storm.
Yangon AMATA Smart & Eco City Limited cooperated with the Myanmar Red Cross Society (MRCS) and donated zinc-roofing sheets worth around USD5,000 as provisions for houses damaged by the cyclone.
