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.
Community Partners International’s offices in Myanmar are temporarily closed and we are monitoring the situation closely. While we have paused some activities, we are seeking to maintain essential health, humanitarian, and development services wherever we can during this period. We plan to fully resume activities as soon as possible.
Community Partners International stands with the people of Myanmar in their aspirations for peace, freedom, human rights, and development. We support the statement of the United Nations Secretary-General to respect the will of the people and resolve differences through peaceful dialogue.
