Your help is urgently needed for Rohingya children and families. 

Over 738,000 Rohingya children, women and men have been forced to escape violence in Myanmar by fleeing to Bangladesh. 

They have walked for days through jungles and mountains, or braved dangerous sea voyages across the Bay of Bengal. As they arrive exhausted, hungry, sick and in need of protection, UNHCR has been on the ground in Bangladesh leading the emergency response efforts by distributing urgently-needed supplies such as tents, blankets, sleeping mats and solar lamps.

More than half of the 900,000 Rohingya refugee population in the Cox’s Bazar settlements are children.

Due to funding shortages, approximately 36% of Rohingya children between the ages of 3 and 14 remain without access to primary education, while more than 91% of Rohingya refugees between 15 and 24 years old are not receiving any form of education. 

Please make an generous gift to provide refugee children with education and a better future.
