The President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Peter Maurer is visiting the northern areas of Rakhine State for the first time. During his three-day visit he observed a Red Cross Movement mobile medical clinic in Buthidaung and joined a food distribution in Maungdaw. The Red Cross Movement is scaling up and doubling its distributions as monsoon season approaches, so people have enough food to last when roads are inaccessible.
