Overview

14/05/2019

Over 97,000 refugees from Myanmar are staying in nine camps along the border in Thailand. Most camps were established in 1997, following the arrival of thousands of Myanmar refugees fleeing armed conflict and persecution. ? Planning and preparedness for repatriation has been ongoing. Since 2005, around 108,000 have been resettled in other locations, while around 18,000 have returned to Myanmar. A decline in facilitated return has been observed. Since June 2018, one family (six individuals) was repatriated. ?

During the rainy season, normally May–October, flooding and landslides are often reported in the camps. Main needs, including shelter, food, sanitation, healthcare and education, are covered by the humanitarian response.
