Chin conflict victims to teach children at camp
31 May 2015 — Chin villagers displaced by clashes between the Burma Army and the Arakan Army are building a makeshift school to teach their children in Paletwa Township, Chin State.
The Chin IDPs (Internally Displaced Persons) told the Khumi Media Group that they were making an effort to improvise a temporary place for their children to study at their Lohtin camp.
“We are afraid of going back to our village. Although we are here at our temporary camp, we want our children to study. So, we are building a makeshift school for them,” said a Chin victim.
The Khumi Media Group said that the head of the Township Education Department had reportedly come to their camp and provided school uniforms for children.
Soldiers from the two armies had clashed at least four times since March this year, forcing hundreds of villagers in Chin and Arakan States into hiding.#
