Karenni Refugee Network says some international assistances are being provided in Loikaw but has not reached the much-needed refugee camps in the western part of Hpruso and Demoso

An official from the Karenni Refugee Assistance Network (KRNN) said that despite reports that some international assistances were being distributed in Loikaw, which was approved by the military council, aid was not reaching the much-needed refugee camps in the western part of Hpruso and Demoso.

There are between 150,000 and 180,000 war-affected people in Karenni State, and over time the food and shelter situation has worsened. Refugees are expecting international assistances to arrive as the military council blocks access to food and medicine routes, said Ko Banya, a Karenni human rights activist.
