"Myanmar: Fuel helps displaced people in Rakhine to cook their food"
More than 100,000 people displaced in 2012 by intercommunal violence in Rakhine State Myanmar are still living in camps. Their movements outside the camps are restricted. They have limited access to resources, something even as basic as fuel for cooking.
Since June 2014, the ICRC has been providing fuel sticks made from local rice husk to families in camps in the townships of Pauktaw and Myebon, close to the State capital of Sitwe.
