Kachin Relief and Development Committee (KRDC)


About us:

Kachin Relief and Development Committee (KRDC) was established in 1994 to work for the rehabilitation and development of Kachin Society. However, in 2005 KRDC became a more structured organization and started working together with other NGOs and INGOs, such as Metta Development Foundation, Nyein (Shalom) Foundation, Eco-Dev, and NEHC. Since conflict renewed in Kachin in 2011, the KRDC has been responding to the emergency needs of conflict-affected people (including internally displaced people). At the moment, KRDC is providing shelter, food and other emergency assistance to IDPs in Kachin State, working together with other NGOs and INGOs. KRDC operates its interventions in KIO controlled areas under the following headings:

Some KRDC Programmes

  • Education – school material support, school construction
  • Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)- semi-permanent Latrine construction, water supply, bathing and washing place, provision of hygiene kit support material.
  • Shelter- shelter and kitchen construction
  • Livelihoods

Under the DPP, KRDC is implementing livelihood activities, including material and financial support for livelihoods to households in KIO controlled areas.
