Your help is urgently needed for Rohingya refugees
The Monsoon season is here. Help provide water, shelter, education, food and medicine for Rohingya refugees.
Violence and persecution in Myanmar have now driven over a million Rohingya from their homes. Rohingya refugees fled violence in Myanmar at a staggering rate in 2017 when violence broke out, including the burning of entire Rohingya villages.
At the peak of the crisis, thousands were crossing into Bangladesh daily. Most walked for days through jungles and mountains, or braved dangerous sea voyages across the Bay of Bengal to reach safety. They arrived exhausted, hungry and sick—urgently in need of protection and humanitarian assistance.
Over 900,000 Rohingya refugees found safety from violence in the Cox's Bazar region of Bangladesh. As they have worked to re-establish their lives, new threats have emerged. Covid-19, annual monsoon weather conditions and a massive fire in March 2021 all continue to pose challenges to the everyday survival of the Rohingya people.
UNHCR is on the ground in Bangladesh providing lifesaving aid to Rohingya refugees, but resources are stretched thin. You can help rush critical aid including food, clean water, medicine and tents to Rohingya children and families.
