We work to meet humanitarian needs and build community resilience in Myanmar.

Myanmar is in a state of protracted, complex and evolving humanitarian crisis; it calls for a different response that is responsive to humanitarian needs, and led by national actors.

The issue

Even before the military coup, humanitarian need in Myanmar had steadily increased, driven by multiple conflict dynamics and displacement, natural disasters, and the COVID-19 pandemic. The coup is impacting the ability to deliver humanitarian assistance. This means that populations that were already extremely vulnerable and relying on humanitarian aid – internally displaced people (IDPs) in camps, people newly displaced by conflict, Rohingya, returnees and their host communities – are now facing increased difficulty in accessing food, health services, and water and sanitation services. The current crisis in Myanmar is also likely to create new humanitarian needs.
