Emergency food, drinking water and shelter to help people displaced in Rakhine State, western Burma.
Britain has pledged emergency food, drinking water and shelter to help people displaced in Rakhine State in western Burma.
In May 2013, Minister for International Development Alan Duncan and Foreign Office Minister for South East Asia Hugo Swire announced a £4.4 million package of humanitarian support for people displaced by violence and facing the additional threats of the rainy season and approaching storms.
Britain’s package of emergency assistance will provide:
- Nearly 80,000 people with access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation facilities
malnourished children aged 0-59 months with treatment for acute malnutrition in rural camps
- hygiene kits to nearly 40,000 people
