Medical aid for Myanmar

DEMIRA helps people affected by the floods with relief supplies and medical care

Medical aid for Myanmar

Large parts of Rakhine State in Myanmar were flooded by the heavy monsoon rains in late June. According to official estimates about 1.3 million people are affected; over 400,000 of them are dependent on food supplies. Due to the extent of destruction, the State of Rakhine was declared disaster area. In order to supply the local population international assistance is indispensable.

In order to assist the people in the disaster area, DEMIRA is involved in providing food, drinking water, water treatment chemicals and medical aid.

The focus of our work is medical assistance. Through a mobile medical team, consisting of experts from Germany, we provide the necessary medical care for the population in the remote areas of Rakhine. We also support the local medical facilities by German doctors and nurses, to train their colleagues in Myanmar. In addition to the acute emergency relief, we sustainably help to improve the medical situation in Myanmar.
