What We Do
UEHRD focuses on the immediate humanitarian and long-term development needs of all communities in Rakhine. Our priority is supporting resettlement and providing humanitarian assistance. Immediate needs include access to safety, shelter, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), resettlement and health services.
There is also a critical need to adopt medium and long-term sustainable and equitable approaches to tackle issues located at the humanitarian-development-peace nexus. As such, we focus on and across the following areas to work inclusively with multisectoral partners from the government, international partners, local organizations and communities.
UEHRD's activities, centered around our core themes and objectives, are implemented through our ten task forces.
We work strategically with key partners who have a shared vision for inclusive growth and development in Myanmar. We are supported by a variety of organisations and individuals from both inside Myanmar and abroad, who endeavour to contribute constructively towards a better future for Rakhine. UEHRD"s private sector arm, comprising the ten task forces, works with government agencies and acts as a conduit for partners including United Nations agencies, international bilateral and multilateral partners, donors, and local organisations.
We are open to working with constructive partners who share our goal of a peaceful, prosperous and developed Rakhine where all communities can live in harmony, security and mutual respect.
