Acnur, belonging to the United Nations Organization, has detailed that some 440,000 people have been displaced since February 2021; which are added to the 370,000 existing ones who had previously fled their homes.

The international body has predicted that the number of displaced people will increase considerably in the coming weeks and months.

The UNHCR has highlighted that this is a consequence of the fact that security in that nation has been deteriorating as conflicts and fighting between factions increase.

Among the regions most affected by displacement are Kayin, Kayah, Mon and Shan located in the south of the country; and as well as Bago (east), and Tanintharyi, which together account for more than half of the 440,000 civilians displaced in the last 12 months.

The data from the report presented by the institution reveals that humanitarian access in various regions of Myanmar continues to be restricted by insecurity, roadblocks and difficulties in obtaining access permits.
