The CIDKP was formed in 1998 to raise awareness about the plight of internally displaced Karen/Kayin people and to deliver humanitarian assistance in response to their needs.
The organization has field staff in all townships of Karen/Kayin State, as well as in parts of Tenasserim/Tanintharyi Region, northern Mon State and eastern Bago Region.
Its main programme activities include the delivery of relief assistance to displaced communities who have experienced shocks to their livelihoods.
It also supports a prosthesis workshop for people injured by landmines.
CIDKP is a cross-border humanitarian organization which was established in 1998 and provides humanitarian assistance, mine risk education and prosthesis, conducts capacity building trainings to people in remote areas, documents and publicizes the problems faced by Karen IDP communities in Myanmar with the aim to reduce their suffering. CIDKP activities in Kyauky Kyi include providing food and non-food items to the twelve villages of Khe Der village track. This project aims at providing essential assistance to conflict-affected IDPs, to support trust building and dialogue with political stakeholders at the local level in order to increase confidence in the cease fire and to expand humanitarian space.
