Through our partner, we filled a gap in the COVID-19 response in Kyauk Phyu in Rakhine by turning the attention on the people in quarantine centres. The five quarantine centres in the town’s schools did not provide either protection equipment for the volunteers running the centres, or food and hygiene products for the people in quarantine.

Our partner provided them with food and hygiene kits, and had reached 300 people by the end of December 2020.

In addition, our partner also supported the response in the broader community, distributing food to 1,260 households affected by COVID-19 income loss, as well as basic health items to impoverished groups in an effort to slow down the rate of infection.
