Introduction from WPN DirectorIntroduction from WPN DirectorIntroduction from WPN DirectorIntroduction from WPN DirectorIntroduction from WPN DirectorFor 17 years no gunfire was heard in Kachin State until June 9, 2011 when aceasefire between the central government and the Kachin Independence Organization(KIO) collapsed. The hostilities have over the past year forced at least 75,000villagers in Kachin and northern Shan states to flee from their homes.The conflict has hit civilians very hard. Women, children and the elderly havesuffered in particular as they face serious difficulties obtaining food, shelter,and health care. Complicating matters further, many of the people who fled toChina were forced to return to Burma after authorities there failed to recognizethem as refugees.In response to the growing humanitarian crisis on the China-Kachin border, agroup of concerned Kachin civilians came to together just days after the crisisbegan to form ‘Wunpang Ninghtoi’ (WPN), or ‘Light for the People’.Since June 14 2011, when our organization came into being, many displaced peoplehave benefited from our relief efforts which included providing food, shelterand health services. We have worked hard to help those sheltering in the Ma JaYang area, both inside Kachin state and on the China side of the border.The needs of the displaced people are great and our limited resources are small.Children and the elderly have died in the camps from acute diarrhea and manyothers remain sick from drinking dirty water and lack of access to medicalsupport.The safety of affected civilians remains a major concern. Some villagers wereshot and killed in their homes while many others who were detained have yet tobe seen again. When the victims family members tell us these stories, we can donothing but weep along with them.The villagers are longing for the day they can return home and resume their livesbut because of the continued fighting this remains only a dream. In the meantimeWPN will continue to provide a vital lifeline to those in need.
