UNITED NATIONS: Nearly half a million people, mostly Muslims, continue to require humanitarian assistance three years after inter-communal violence raked Myanmar’s western Rakhine state, the United Nations Humanitarian office said on Friday.
According to the UN’s over 416,000 people remain in need of relief, including almost 140,000 displaced people living in dire conditions in camps and many others without citizenship in isolated villages.
To that point, OCHA confirmed that up to 40,000 of the displaced people in Rakhine state live in camps within 500 metres of the coastline, leaving them vulnerable to the elements amid an imminent monsoon season.
