Internally displaced persons, or IDPs, are among the world’s most vulnerable people. Recent conflicts in Puta-O, Myanmar’s northernmost town of Kachin State, has displaced nearly 500 people.

As a result, hundreds of people were left without food, shelter, resources and means to generate an income. ACTED teams have provided their support to hundreds of vulnerable people by distributing emergency food relief to over 400 internally displaced persons.
