Burma-Myanmar: Army blocks roads, restricts travel, obstruct aids and access to displaced Karen villagers, shelling continues, 200 more villagers displaced

479

A local aid provider helping to transport goods to the displaced Karen villagers said help to support basic living such as food and clothing had reached Kyauk Gyi Town in Pegu Division, but the Burma Army refused to issue travel permission for the transportation.

The aid worker told Karen News it is impossible to get the assistance through as roads to the community have been blocked. The aid worker confirmed donations had reached the current location a month ago and most of the assistance had come from Yangon, Pathein and Pegu.

This humanitarian assistance includes food, medicine, materials for shelter, garments and donated money. The aid was organized, collected and delivered to the designated areas by Karen youth networks both inside and outside of Burma.

Karen National Union officials have been actively negotiating with the Burma Army to try to obtain a permit for safe transport of the assistance to the desperate communities.
