EU News 483/2013
Brussels, 23 November 2013
The European Commission has allocated an additional €3 million in humanitarian aid to help those affected by conflict and communal violence in Myanmar/Burma. This brings the total humanitarian assistance to €48.6 m for 2012-2013.
Fighting between the national army and the Kachin Independence Army has left thousands displaced in the northeast, while continued sporadic communal violence in Rakhine State has led to further displacements. New funds will be used to bring food, nutrition and livelihood support to the most vulnerable of the affected people in Rakhine, Kachin and Northern Shan states.
