I am pleased to share with you the 2020 Myanmar Humanitarian Fund (MHF) Annual Report. This document provides an overview of the MHF-supported operations and demonstrates how the Fund was used strategically to address urgent humanitarian needs of the most vulnerable people in 2020. It presents the management and accountability mechanisms of the Fund, as well as the achievements by cluster and sector. I would like to acknowledge the efforts of our partners, the recipients of MHF funding – national and international NGOs and UN agencies, funds and programmes – cluster and sector coordinators and support staff for their dedication and tireless work in Myanmar.

The MHF funds enabled them to respond to priority needs of the most vulnerable people affected by conflict, including internally displaced people in southern Chin, Rakhine, Kachin, northern Shan, eastern Bago and Kayin states, as well as to kick-start preventive and response action related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
