Volunteers providing a lifeline to divided communities in Rakhine
It is 7.30am in Sittwe, Rakhine State, and volunteers from the Myanmar Red Cross Society are assembling outside a large wooden shelter. The shelter is home to 30 volunteers who have been drafted in from other parts of the country after outbreaks of intercommunal violence swept through Rakhine earlier this year, causing loss of life and massive displacement.
