Myanmar was hit particularly hard this monsoon season with severe spells of heavy rains and strong winds throughout July and August (2019). This peaked week beginning 12th August with torrential monsoon rains impacting large parts of the country causing river banks to overflow, landslides, and extensive flooding. The worst landslide, in Paung Township, killed more than 70 people. Worst hit have been the states of Mon, Bago, and Kayin with displacement reached over 80,000 people. Our response - funded by START Funds - consists of targeting 17 villages in Kayin State and 7 villages in Mon state to reach approximately 12,000 people with food items to survive one month of their basic food needs. Rapid assessments have identified these villages as yet to receive sufficient supplies, and significant damage to food stocks and crops leaving families without the enough food.
