Chin Association of Maryland, Inc. (CAM) is grateful to Chin churches in the United States for their financial support for the writing and publishing of Unprotected: Chin IDPs in Chin and Rakhine States in Myanmar/ Burma. Without their support, this would not have been possible. We are indebted to Chin community members in Chin State and Rakhine State who conducted the in-depth assessment on the ground. We thank you to Jenny Siegel, a Ph.D student, who is a CAM Consultant for this report. She compiled and edited the report, including background information and also assessment information. CAM is also grateful to Steven Ruben who selected photos for the report, and to Matthew Wilch who provided advice to Zo Tum Hmung, Executive Director, CAM.

The names of people in photos or who provided personal accounts used in the report and the names of people interviewed have not been included to protect their privacy and security. We have tried our best to describe and analyze in good faith the situations of Chins Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Paletwa and Sami in Chin State and Chin IDPs in Rakhine State. However, if we have inadvertently made any errors in this report, they are our own.
