Why we are there
The work of DRC in Myanmar is anchored in an approach that offers support across communities in urban, rural and isolated areas in Rakhine, Kachin and northern Shan – three of the seven states in Myanmar. DRC is providing services directly and via local partners.
What we do
DRC responds to the immediate needs of internally displaced people (IDPs) and the communities hosting them, as well as building their resilience to shocks and stresses in the longer term.
Humanitarian assistance is provided through multi-sector and integrated responses in Rakhine, Kachin and Northern Shan states. Efforts are made to further scale up and scale out responses to address the humanitarian crisis in Myanmar through all five core DRC sectors - namely Protection, Economic Recovery, Humanitarian Disarmament & Peacebuilding, Shelter & Settlements, and Camp Coordination & Camp Management, as well as Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).
