Rakhine IDP camps struggle with food shortages



Many  IDP camps in Rakhine State are now facing food shortages due to the lack of domestic and foreign assistance.

 

An official from Minbya  IDP camp stated that there were days when the displaced persons in certain villages had to eat one meal with half of  rice grains.

 

"Livelihood is very difficult here. Many  people are starving as they are not getting assistance," added the official.

 

After they encountered difficulties, a group offered them support in the form of roughly 60,000 Kyats, but this sum is insufficient to provide displaced people with enough food on a daily basis.


The  displaced persons are facing difficulties as they don't have jobs. They are now concerned about the rainy days.

 

They are now living in tarpaulins and  the concern for their health is only increasing.

 

An IDP camp supports over 2,000 displaced persons who came from Pauktaw township.  For the security reasons, Narinjara News refrains from disclosing the name of villages.
