CPI Joins Call for an End to Violence Against Civilians in Myanmar and Warns of Imminent Humanitarian Crisis
Community Partners International (CPI) has joined with more than 40 international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) operating in Myanmar to call for and end to violence against civilians including children and warn of an imminent humanitarian crisis.
The statement, endorsed by 32 INGOs operating in Myanmar, highlights the potential immediate and longer-term impacts of the military seizure of power on the safety, rights and wellbeing of people across Myanmar, particularly those already experiencing vulnerability and marginalization.
Further to events in Myanmar (Burma) on Monday, February 1, 2021, Community Partners International (CPI) is gravely concerned for the welfare of Myanmar’s most vulnerable people.
On November 4, 2020, Community Partners International (CPI) held the second in a series of live webinars focused on “COVID-19 and Conflict in Myanmar’s Ethnic States”. At this second webinar, speakers from ethnic and community-based organizations in Myanmar’s Shan and Kachin States discussed their needs for additional assistance and support to ensure the effectiveness of their COVID-19 responses.
As an ER doctor in Los Angeles, I was fortunate to receive the COVID-19 vaccine a few days ago. After more than ten months' battling the pandemic day-to-day in the ER, it was an emotional moment for my colleagues and me to begin administering these vaccines.
