As MYPOL continues working with the MPF during the #COVID19 crisis, it’s essential to make sure police can do their work safely. On 7 April, MYPOL donated 9,000 disposable gloves, 25,000 face masks, and 1,417 bottles of hand sanitizer to the Yangon Police Headquarters.

The items came from MYPOL’s Community Policing component and will help Yangon police continue to engage with the public and perform their duties during this difficult time. This equipment will also help the public feel safe when visiting police stations and not be afraid to report crimes.

MYPOL’s goal to help the safety of all Myanmar’s communities remains the same even during the crisis. The project will continue working with the MPF, as well as our other partners like Parliament, CSOs and Media, and hopes that everyone stays safe and healthy.
