IDPs critically low on food provision

Our TCD partners in Western Myanmar are in a desperate situation.  The on-going conflict between the Arakan Army and Burmese Military has escalated in recent weeks, with an expected peak in fighting in Paletwa Township to occur this week.  Thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have flooded Paletwa town and local food stocks have been depleted, tripling the price of rice in local markets.

Our TCD partners have taken in 300 IDPs but find themselves critically low on food, due to isolation restrictions and more.  We are working with a partner NGO, with permission and assistance from the Burmese government, to transport critical food aid to our partners.  But, we need to raise $2500 USD to meet this immediate need, providing basic food needs for these 300 IDPs for two weeks.  

We are calling as many donors and friends as possible.  Please consider joining the effort today...
