Sittwe, April 8, 2014 - The departure of many International non-government organizations, United Nation agencies and International Committee of the Red Cross from Sittwe last week has been a major concern for the international community.

Currently, it is estimated that there are 90,000 internally displaced people (IDP) in Sittwe, where MERCY Malaysia used to serve 6 IDP camps and 17,000 IDP in Pauk Taw which is accessible only by boat. The situation is dismal due to the lack of healthcare, water and food supplies.
