Naga people suffering severe food shortages due to conflict and blockades

Locals are facing severe food shortages because of disrupted supply routes, limits set by the military on the transport of goods and soaring rice prices.

This week’s story is by a Doh Athan freelance journalist and is available in Burmese and English.

This is the 300th episode of Doh Athan, a weekly podcast about human rights issues in Myanmar. The podcast is made by local journalists with media partners from across the country, through a partnership with Fondation Hirondelle and the support of our donors. It has been a long way since we broadcast our first episode on October 18, 2017. In recent years it has often been difficult to maintain our podcast, but we are determined to continue. We would like to thank our aoudience from the bottom of our hearts.
