Rohingya Refugee Crisis

 

The Rohingya refugee crisis has left more than 500,000 people displaced, forced to flee their homes in Myanmar across the border to Bangladesh since 25 August 2017.

 

Hundreds of Rohingya have been killed, while hundreds of thousands of children, women and men are sheltering in muddy, makeshift refugee camps in Bangladesh. Many are still trying to cross mountains, dense bush and rice fields to reach safety in Bangladesh, surviving for weeks with minimal food. This is an ongoing crisis and it’s not known if the Rohingya will be able to return to their homes in Myanmar.

 

The immediate needs are food, hygiene and shelter items. ADRA is currently assembling food and shelter supplies to provide to those most in need, and preparing to scale up its response to include blankets, personal hygiene kits, kitchen utensils, water storage containers and temporary shelter. Food parcels contain lentils, salt, sugar and oil to complement rice provided by the United Nations World Food Program. The first distributions, reaching 45,000 people, began in Cox’s Bazaar in early October.

 

Your donation will provide food and shelter, and help restore hope for the Rohingya refugees. Please donate now!

 

If funds raised exceed ADRA's requirements for this appeal, your donation will go to our DIsaster Fund for other disaster response and preparedness activities.
