The Danish Refugee Council / Danish Demining Group (DRC/DDG) assists refugees and internally displaced persons across the globe: we provide emergency aid, fight for their rights, and strengthen their opportunity for a brighter future. We work in conflict-affected areas, along the displacement routes, and in the countries where refugees settle. In cooperation with local communities, we strive for responsible and sustainable solutions. We work toward successful integration and – whenever possible – for the fulfilment of the wish to return home.
In Myanmar, DRC has been present since 2009, and since June 2012 broadened its presence via the Danish Demining Group (DDG) - DRC’s division for Mine Action.
DRC/DDG is currently engaged in responses in Rakhine, Kachin, Kayah and Northern Shan states. Our response targets displaced, and displacement affected communities and other vulnerable communities in some of the most deprived areas of Myanmar. Key activities include protection (including Child Protection, GBV and Protection Monitoring), CCCM, WASH, Livelihoods, shelter and humanitarian mine action.
DRC/DDG Myanmar currently employs over 400 staff and operates from six operational offices. Our main office is in Yangon; our main donors in Myanmar include ECHO, OFDA, UNICEF, UNHCR, DANIDA, SDC, DFAT-AUSAID, LIFT-UNOPS, OFDA, HARP-DFID, EC, UNFPA, GIZ, MHF-OCHA and private donors.
