Urgent Action: Aid stopped to 9,000 people who fled Burma Army attacks

International donors have cut aid to 9,000 displaced villagers from Shan and Karen States.

They fled their farms and villages following attacks by the Burmese Army, and now most live in jungle and mountain camps in Burma, forced to rely on international aid. Some have lived there for ten years or more.

From October they will no longer receive essential aid, and risk being forced to return to their villages, despite it not being safe for most of them to return because of Burmese Army soldiers and landmines.

Ask the Department for International Development (DFID) to step in to stop people being starved back to danger.
