Rohingya Emergency Appeal
'Ethnic cleansing' in Myanmar
In Myanmar, hundreds of villages have been burned to the ground. Homes and farmlands have been destroyed. We still do not know how many innocent people have been beheaded or shot as they tried to run away.
More than 603, 000 Rohingya refugees have fled over the border and into Bangladesh, barely escaping with their lives. Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar have faced decades of discrimination and persecution, but recently the crisis has become even more acute.
Life in the overcrowded camps is a waking nightmare
In the Bangladeshi border town of Cox’s Bazar, more than half a million new refugees have arrived in less than two months. Unfortunately, the refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar were already filled to capacity by Rohingya Muslims who had fled earlier violence in Myanmar.
Most Rohingya refugees are currently living in desperate conditions. Basic necessities like food, water and shelter are all in short supply. In the severely overstretched camps, children and pregnant women are forced to sleep on the dirty ground. Contaminated water and human waste is everywhere, and many children have already developed skin conditions or diarrhoea.Donate Now
