Myanmar

In Myanmar, the ICRC provides humanitarian assistance to people affected by armed conflict and other situations of violence. We have been present in Myanmar for over 30 years, including Kachin, Shan and Rakhine states. Our response is inclusive of emergency aid as well as long-term assistance. We improve access to clean water, health-care facilities and better living conditions, promote international humanitarian law and spread education about risks related to landmines. We also visit places of detention with an aim to secure better living conditions for all detainees, restore communication between them and their loved ones, and reunite families. Many of our programmes are jointly carried out with the Myanmar Red Cross Society.
