Myanmar: Rohingya face a humanitarian crisis EU Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection

Taken on 2014-06-11

In Myanmar/Burma, the Rohingya have very limited access to basic services and viable livelihood opportunities. Many live in camps where they have only limited access to health care and education, and no livelihood opportunities. Since 2012, widespread inter-communal violence has put Rohingya in an increasingly diffcult situation.

Myanmar's Rakhine State: different realities of displaced, confined and resettled communities

Taken on 2014-05-28

Following the inter-communal violence which erupted in 2012, many people from minority groups were forced to leave their house and find refuge in camps. Others were confined to their villages without the possibility to leave them, whatever the reason. Rakhine (Buddhist) people instead were resettled in new houses in villages located in majority-Muslim areas. In this album, the villages, camps and shelters of Rakhine, Rohingya and Maramagyi people speak of the difference life conditions of these communities in Myanmar.

"The Ledo Road (Hindi: लेडो रोड, Burmese: လီဒိုလမ်းမကြီး, Chinese: 中印公路) (from Ledo, Assam, India to Kunming, Yunnan, China) was built during World War II so that the Western Allies could supply the Chinese as an alternative to the Burma Road which had been cut by the Japanese in 1942. It was renamed the Stilwell Road (named after General Joseph Stilwell of the U.S. Army) in early 1945 at the suggestion of Chiang Kai-shek. It passes through the Burmese towns of Shingbwiyang, Myitkyina and Bhamo in Kachin state." 1944 or 1945, date unknown.

"The Burma Campaign in the South-East Asian Theatre of World War II took place over four years from 1942 to 1945. During the first year of the campaign, the Imperial Japanese Army (with aid from Thai forces and Burmese insurgents) had driven British forces and Chinese forces out of Burma, and occupied the country. From May to December 1942, active campaigning ceased, as the monsoon rains made tactical movement almost impossible in the forested and mountainous border between India and Burma, and both the Allies and Japanese faced severe logistical constraints." Date unknown.
