CHIN STATE – It was stated that the displaced persons’ houses at Paletwa Stadium require wood, bamboo, and tin roofing to make them more stable to withstand the rainy season, and thus urgent assistance is needed.
The International Relief Committee (IRC) reportedly donated wood and bamboo for 173 households and 746 persons who needed to rebuild or repair their homes/shelters but (tin) roofings are still needed.
These war refugees are those who fled to Paletwa in 2020 due to the battles between the junta council and Arakan Army (AA).
Currently, there are about 602 families with more than 2000 IDPs in Paletwa receiving only rice, beans, and cooking oil as assistance. After the passing of Cyclone Mocha, the commodity prices became extremely high, and the IDPs are facing difficulties in buying other food.
