Myanmar is the second biggest country in South East Asia, bordering five countries and with a population of over 50 million. Although it is rich in resources, around one quarter of the population still live below the poverty line.

Despite fast economic change, Myanmar still has a high number of natural disasters and multiple, protracted conflicts. Over one million people are thought to be displaced from across Myanmar as a result of humanitarian emergencies and disasters.

Oxfam in Myanmar works to reduce poverty and inequality through promoting the power of women and men to harness the benefits of political reform and economic development.
