Strengthening Communities

Transporting hygiene kits
Transporting hygiene kits

Displacement in Karen state, Myanmar continues with 200,000 people displaced from their homes in the last three months. They are sheltering in 100 displacement areas around Karen state.

This makes it difficult for assistance to reach each area.

Volunteers and community workers are managing to move hygiene boxes across the border from Thailand to reach those displaced nearby. Only a few can reach the more distant displacement areas.

This is positive and it means that some new mothers are receiving support and health guidance.

While they are unable to visit the displaced communities, the health community workers are taking the opportunity for team building and preparing for return to full action. This training is strengthening their knowledge of maternal care and preparing materials to take to the new mothers.

As we see in this project, the best way to provide assistance to the displaced is through local community groups. They know the area and have good contacts in the villages.

We thank you for your continuing support to this project that will build stronger communities able to resist abuses such as we have seen recently.
