The displaced communities in Karen state Myanmar continue to show amazing resilience in the light of ongoing uncertainty.
Conditions in many parts of the state are very dangerous and they change quickly. Nonetheless local governance and civil society groups are still functioning.
There are systems in place and the communities, whether displaced or not, still keep going and manage as best they can.
Brave community workers have been able to reach displaced communities near the Thai-Myanmar border but the concern is for the more distant displaced (and newly displaced) communities.
The community workers have learnt that mothers who have received the health training are proudly sharing their knowledge with other new mothers and this knowledge ripples through in a limited way. Of course, delivering supplies is more challenging.
In many of the distant villages, local leaders have also benefited from previous health training and they are committed to sharing the information when they can.
It shows that empowering the communities is essential to achieving a level of sustainability even in these difficult conditions. Thank you for joining us to give renewed support when the situation makes it possible.
