This training manual is for field staff working in the camps along the Thailand/Myanmar border (Nutrition Officers and Camp-based workers). However, it can be used by staff working along the border, outside of camps. The materials are relevant for both settings and the terminology can be easily adapted.

On the evening of 16th September continuous heavy rain caused a land slip at the Ban Mae La Oon refugee camp, Sop Moei District in Mae Hong Son Province. As the incident took place after dark, camp residents were not immediately aware of the extent of the damage. When it became clear that some houses in the section had disappeared, the camp leadership mobilised the community to search for survivors. A two-year-old girl was found dead from head injuries – a further 12 residents were injured and 7 were unaccounted for.
This report covers the period January to December 2017 and outlines TBC’s progress based on the organisation’s Strategic Directions for Thailand and Burma/Myanmar 2017–2019. TBC’s programmes reached more than 195,000 men, women, and children—about 97,0001 in nine refugee camps in Thailand, and 98,000 in 191 villages in southeast Burma/Myanmar.
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.
