More than 100,000 people have been displaced since the conflict in Kachin State re-started in 2011, after a 17-year ceasefire broke.
Those who are forced to flee the conflict face countless challenges, including loss of land, sanitation issues and access to basic services.
But displaced people at an IDP camp on the outskirts of Myitkyina, the state capital, face another difficulty altogether: where to bury their dead relatives.
