Internally Displaced People (IDPs) are individuals or groups of people who are forced to flee their homes but, unlike refugees, remain within their country's borders.
There are over 1.5 million IDPs in Burma, mostly living in remote jungle locations in their bid to avoid further violation. They are the hunted, constantly on the move to avoid atrocious abuses in the form of rape, forced labour, execution and the kidnapping of children to become soldiers or baggage carriers for the army.
Over 1 million Burmese have fled to neighbouring countries to live as refugees there. WRA proudly facilitate the work of in-country partners as they provide help and hope to those suffering and displaced by one of this planet's most brutal military regimes.
