Background: USAID and DfID have been TBC’s primary sources of funding for food assistance to the Shan and Karen IDP camps since 2006.

A 40% decrease in DfID humanitarian funding in 2017 led to TBC withdrawing this contribution to the IDP camps and prioritising support for the refugee camps in Thailand. The expiration of a multi‐year funding commitment from USAID in August 2017 then induced the cessation of food aid to the IDP camps.
