UNHCR's assistance is impartial and based on needs, regardless of one's background.
Humanitarian access is improving for all the affected areas in Rakhine state. UNHCR is permitted by the authorities to travel to all the affected areas. There are logistical problems; some areas are only reachable by boat but we are able to send our teams out for assessments and distribution.
To distribute aid, UNHCR travels to affected areas to assess IDPs' needs by asking them questions and observing the situation for ourselves. We compile lists of who needs what where in what quantities, and try our best to allocate relief items based on what we have on hand and what's available from UNHCR's global supply stockpiles.
UNHCR is also working with other UN agencies and INGOs to support the Myanmar government in this emergency response. We are the lead agency for protection, shelter, non-food items, camp coordination and camp management.
