Over a million people have been affected by flooding in Myanmar, which has caused widespread damage and cost dozens lives. After the country's authorities appealed for international aid, Switzerland released USD 126,000 to provide relief for the victims.
Torrential rain and extremely high winds have been flooding several regions of Myanmar since the end of July 2015. In addition to dozens reported deaths, over a million people have been left affected by this natural disaster.
The international community is deeply concerned by the dire humanitarian situation faced by internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Taung Paw camp in Myebon Township, Rakhine State and strongly urges the Union Government to ensure immediate, full, and unimpeded humanitarian access to those in need. The deteriorating living conditions in the camp have created an inhumane environment for camp residents.
A deux reprises à nouveau, l'Aide humanitaire de la Confédération a fait preuve de sa disponibilité et de son efficacité en intervenant simultanément dans deux cas de catastrophes naturelles particulièrement meurtrières : après le cyclone Nargis au Myanmar et suite au tremblement de terre qui a ravagé le Sichuan, en Chine. Dans ces deux pays, la DDC était déjà active bien avant ces cataclysmes.
La DDC est présente au Myanmar depuis plusieurs années.
On two recent occasions, Swiss Humanitarian Aid once again proved its availability and effectiveness, intervening simultaneously after two particularly lethal disasters: the cyclone Nargis in Myanmar, and the earthquake that devastated Sichuan in China. In both of these countries, the SDC had been active long before the disasters.
The SDC has been present in Myanmar for several years.
The Swiss government has granted a SFr. 50 million credit to be used by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, SDC, in a broad-based action programme aimed at assisting flood-stricken regions in Europe and Asia.
The recent floods have cost many lives and devastated infrastructure and housing in Europe and Asia. In response, on 22 August the Swiss government approved a supplementary credit of SFr. 50 million on behalf of the flood victims.
