Thousands in Myanmar lack basic identification. NRC’s One Stop Service provides them with the assistance they need.

In Myanmar, the lack of proper identification documents is a problem that affects more than 10 million people.

The accurate number is probably higher, as those living in areas dominated by Non State Actors did not participate in the census.
