Clashes in Kachin State between the national army and a local armed group in recent years have led to the displacement of more than 100,000 people. These people are now living in camps in difficult access areas. Willing to go where others don't, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL teams have since been working in partnership with local actors to reach affected populations in 13 camps.
"We cannot escape, these people are our people"
In 2015, in Myanmar, about 235,000 persons are estimated to be affected by conflict and displaced from their original living area for more than three years. These affected communities mostly reside in two different parts of the country, Kachin and Rakhine States, where SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL intervenes. Our teams met with affected people from these two States.
In the context of the elections in Myanmar, also known as Burma, that are changing the face of the country, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL teams are increasing their efforts to develop access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in crucial areas such as Rakhine State, where populations are often deprived of the most basic services.
Project: Emergency WaSH assistance and Food Security and Livelihoods support to vulnerable population affected by conflicts in Rakhine and Kachin State.
The beneficiary baseline survey was implemented in the frame of economic recovery and market system (ERMS) activities for improving the income and livelihoods of the targeted beneficiaries in short and long term.
Recent months have seen thousands of Rohingya and Bangladeshi people, fleeing difficult living conditions in their home countries, take to the seas aboard makeshift boats. Since the closure of the Malaysian border a few days ago, they have been trapped at sea, often in appalling conditions. But who are these people, and what exactly are they trying to escape? Christophe Vavasseur, Solidarités International’s Asia Desk Manager, offers some insight.
Who are these "boat people", adrift at sea?
