These photographs portray villagers accessing humanitarian aid, including health care services and food supplies, from Backpack Health Worker Team (BPHWT), Emergency Assistance Team (EAT)-Burma and the East Life Committee.

Footnotes

1 KHRG trains villagers in eastern Burma to document individual human rights abuses using a standardised reporting format, conducts interviews with other villagers, and writes general updates on the situation in areas with which they are familiar.

2 In order to increase the transparency of KHRG methodology and more directly communicate the experiences and perspectives of villagers in eastern Burma, KHRG aims to make all field information received available on the KHRG website once it has been processed and translated, subject only to security considerations. As companion to this, a redesigned website will be released in 2013. In the meantime, KHRG’s most recently-published field information from Nyaunglebin District can be found in the report, “Nyaunglebin Situation Update: Kyauk Kyi and Shwegyin townships, September to November 2012,” KHRG, June 2013.
