In August 2017, violent attacks in Myanmar targeted the Rohingya people, burning their villages, and forcing families to flee for their lives to Bangladesh. Over 700,000 Rohingya took shelter on a small swath of land in Cox’s Bazar, which has become the largest refugee camp in the world. Families face risks from malnutrition, disease, inadequate shelters, and a lack of opportunities for the future. The Rohingya are not officially recognised by any country. They need to know they have not been forgotten.

You can help Rohingya refugees know that people around the world care about them. Your support keeps families more safely sheltered during monsoon rains, nourishes their children, gives them free health care, and provides them with meaningful income as they work to help other families survive the crisis.
