Tell DFID to help victims of military abuses in Burma

The annual British aid budget for Burma is almost £90 million a year, but not enough of it is reaching people from ethnic minorities who have fled attacks by the Burmese military.

 

In eastern Burma, around a quarter of a million people from ethnic groups now live in temporary camps in the country, or refugee camps on the border in Thailand. Most have fled attacks by the Burmese military. They have lost everything, and many have experienced or witnessed horrific human rights violations. Killing, rapes, torture. Confined to camps by government or military restrictions and because of the fear of further conflict and human rights violations, they are dependent on aid.

 

But for the international community, they are not a priority.

 

Tell the Department for International Development (DFID) to increase funding for victims of conflict and military abuses in Burma.
