Myanmar, Kachin, 31 March 2016  Inter-communal violence and the constant threat of natural disasters have lead to mass displacement and food insecurity across Myanmar.  WFP employs cash based transfers in some 70 camps in government controlled areas of Kachin, where there is access to functioning markets and the security situation is stable. WFP also supports internally displaced people (IDPs) in areas beyond government control with in-kind food assistance.

Myanmar, Rakhine, 7 November 2012

WFP is exploring every means possible to reach people in need of food assistance following the recent upsurge in communal unrest in Rakhine state. The main challenge to reaching people is continued insecurity – or the threat of it – although access is improving by the day, with most of the recently affected locations now accessible for WFP food deliveries. Northern Rakhine state is an extremely remote region, and most affected communities can be reached only by water. WFP continues to provide regular food assistance to about 65,000 people displaced in June, now living in camps in and near Sittwe. WFP is finalising plans to scale up food distributions in areas affected by the October upsurge in violence. Food has been delivered by boat to three affected townships. Since the outset of the crisis in June, WFP has included Super Cereal – a specialised nutritious food – in the rations given to pregnant and breast-feeding women and children under five among the displaced. This is a preventive measure designed to guard against malnutrition. Where possible, WFP has been providing a one-month ration to the displaced using food supplies currently available in the region – mainly rice, pulses, cooking oil and salt.  A child looks on at a food distribution point at Mingan Camp in Sittwe, Myanmar. Since June, WFP has maintained a steady cycle of food distributions to 65,000 displaced people, an operation that has been stepped up again following a resurgence of violence in the past two weeks, believed to have displaced another 35,000.

Myanmar, Rakhine, 7 November 2012

WFP is exploring every means possible to reach people in need of food assistance following the recent upsurge in communal unrest in Rakhine state. The main challenge to reaching people is continued insecurity – or the threat of it – although access is improving by the day, with most of the recently affected locations now accessible for WFP food deliveries. Northern Rakhine state is an extremely remote region, and most affected communities can be reached only by water. WFP continues to provide regular food assistance to about 65,000 people displaced in June, now living in camps in and near Sittwe. WFP is finalising plans to scale up food distributions in areas affected by the October upsurge in violence. Food has been delivered by boat to three affected townships. Since the outset of the crisis in June, WFP has included Super Cereal – a specialised nutritious food – in the rations given to pregnant and breast-feeding women and children under five among the displaced. This is a preventive measure designed to guard against malnutrition. Where possible, WFP has been providing a one-month ration to the displaced using food supplies currently available in the region – mainly rice, pulses, cooking oil and salt.
