Nearly 100,000 people continue to live in displacement camps in Kachin and northern Shan States. Most were first displaced by fighting in 2011, and many have been displaced multiple times, including recent months.
An unprecedented 200,000 child refugees have fled Myanmar and are now in urgent need of help, Unicef has warned, as the Rohingya crisis reaches new proportions.
The attacks have been well-organised, coordinated and systematic, with the intent of not only driving the population out of Myanmar but preventing them from returning to their homes, a new UN report has found.
CEDAW and CRC have called on the Myanmar authorities to immediately stop violence in Rakhine, and to promptly and effectively investigate and vigorously prosecute cases of violence against women and children.
