After almost 50 years of a cruel military regime Myanmar/Burma opened up recently. However, what seems positive leads to a new tragedy, especially for the children.
Most of the organizations which were active in and around Mae Sot have left and started their activities inside Myanmar. Migrants and refugees in Mae Sot are left alone as they don’t feel yet ready to return back home due to the lack of infrastructure, schools and hospitals.
The water in the affected areas has disappeard hence Help without Frontiers stopped the emergency relief activities in Myanmar (Burma). Meanwhile the people start to grow rice again and cleared the caused damage.
Please find the Final Donation Report about the whole emergency response here.
Burma is suffering a flood disaster. Up to now, 1 million people are affected by the flood and nearly 100 are dead. These numbers will probably raise as many areas are still unable to reach. Help without Frontiers is organizing with other organizations (Myawaddy Rescue Team and Karen Rescue Team) relief aid. For this we need your support!
Cyclon "Komen" caused heavy rainfalls in Myanmar/Burma and lead to floods and landslides in 12 out of 14 States. According to UN OCHA a minimum of 259.000 people are affected by the floods; 40.000 houses have been destroyed and so far 69 people died.
