(ICRC) – The people of Kachin State have been caught between intermittent clashes that have continued in the northern part of Myanmar since 2011. A fresh wave of fighting has left close to 6,800 people displaced since early April, when violence broke out again in Kachin. This is besides the 100,000 people who’ve already been displaced in the state over the years. Over the past month, the ones who’ve been rendered homeless have crossed hundreds of miles on feet to arrive at local churches and existing camps for the internally displaced people on the outskirts of Myit Kyi Na.
