Drawing on interviews with villagers, local leaders and civil society organisations, this report presents the deepening humanitarian crisis in Karen State since the 2021 military coup, highlighting the denial and deprivation of aid to civilians and their right to protection from threats to life and person. Local efforts and initiatives are currently filling aid provision gaps, yet they remain excluded from major funding sources.

KHRG calls on the international community, NGOs, funding agencies and regional and foreign governments to make funding directly available to ethnic service providers and civil society organisations, to allow entry to people seeking refuge in neighbouring countries, to ensure the passage of aid into Burma and to create civilian safe zones.
