Summary

This food relief project supports 200 refugee families in need living in Karen State of the Thai-Myanmar border. After many years of living in foreign soil as refugees, they resettled in Karen State to begin their life as residents, but COVID-19 has made them more marginalized and difficult to get out from poverty. GCS will implement emergent relief to provide rice to the most vulnerable refugee families. On World Refugee Day, 20 June, we hope that you remember and support them.

Challenge

According to The Border Consortium(TBC), Over 0.3 million refugees are living in the Thai-Myanmar border area. The refugees have fled violence and conflict between the Myanmar Armed Forces and armed ethnic rebel forces who have caused casualties for a few decades. Due to COVID-19, they lost income to buy food as they could not find works anymore. Restrictions on movement in and out of the regions have made food and necessities more scarce.

Solution

The most urgent issue for refugees is food loss. GCS provides rice to 200 vulnerable families most impacted by COVID-19. The project will help 200 families to cope with hunger and improve their health.

Long-Term Impact

Refugees could meet basic food needs preventing further damage arising from malnutrition and starvation. In the long term, this will enable faster economic recovery from the Pandemic. The Food relief project helps them to fight against COVID-19, the primary barrier to the new chapter of their life as a citizen.
