SUPPORT FOR MOTHERS AND BABIES Myanmar

$75.00

Due to hardship caused by COVID-19 and the Military Coup in Myanmar, many people have suffered due to the shortage of resources to support their survival. Among them, the most affected ones are pregnant women and their new-born children as healthcare services for safe deliveries are not accessible. This greatly jeopardises mothers’ wellbeing and that of their babies. The mothers endure hardship and difficulties in carrying on with their livelihood activities.

In some areas, armed attacks occur and widespread protest against the military junta caused many to become Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) forced to take refuge in camps and temporary shelters.

The targeted beneficiaries of this project are these vulnerable people who are desperate to be provided with help and support.
