Background: In 2017, MRCS is increasing its engagement in Rakhine state through immediate, medium and long-term support to people affected by communal violence. The crises during August 2017 have led to a new wave of displacement both within Rakhine, and from Rakhine into Bangladesh, for both ethnic Rakhine, Muslims and other minority groups. Despite the current constraints, the Movement is able to continue to provide some assistance in Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung townships in Northern Rakhine, and to newly arrived populations in central Rakhine, through the provision of cash grants, water and sanitation, food and healthcare.
In this particular response, MRCS continues to work closely following a Movement-wide approach. The ICRC is the main partner supporting MRCS – through joint operations – in delivery of assistance to populations affected by the crisis with the IFRC mainly supporting MRCS preparedness for emergency response, capacity building and coordination, operational support and prepositioning and replenishment of preparedness stocks.
