OVERVIEW

A 11-truck humanitarian convoy led by the UN and other humanitarian partners delivered food, medicines, and other items to displaced communities living in the Woi Chyai Camp in Laiza town. Significantly, this is the first time that cross-line missions have been permitted to deliver humanitarian assistance to Laiza since December 2011. These missions supplement the aid delivered on a regular basis by local NGOs.

The conflict in Kachin and northern Shan State has displaced an estimated 100,000 people. The number of registered IDPs staying in camps in these areas has reached more than 91,000 including over 53,000 in areas beyond the Government’s control.

Since the beginning of the conflict in 2011, cross-line missions were conducted to border areas, covering only approximately 20 per cent (some 10,000 IDPs) of the total caseload in areas beyond Government control. Full and sustained access to all displaced locations is essential to provide assistance to all people in need.
