Rohingya Emergency Appeal
An estimated 500,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh following violence in Myanmar. The number is rising. They need your help, fast. Treated worse than animals, this dehumanisation of the Rohingya people has become ethnic cleansing in Myanmar. Human rights violations and destruction are rife, with women raped, children abused and villages burned to the ground.
Homes, shops and entire villages are being burned to the ground. The refugees fleeing the violence have crossed the border injured and ill and need urgent medical attention. The camps in Bangladesh do not have sufficient resources to treat the injured or feed the many that haven’t eaten in days.
There is a mass exodus from the country as people flee for their lives, facing perilous journeys to do so. Dozens of refugees, including children, are missing and presumed dead, as Rohingya Muslims were forced to risk everything to escape this brutal persecution.
Far from home and afraid for their lives, most are now dependent on aid for all their basic needs – food, water, shelter and medical care.
Our teams are going to be on the ground early December 2017, delivering life-saving essential aid to those in the camps. We hope to provide food, hygiene and sanitation items, and clean water. Please donate today to help the Rohingya refugees who now need your help more than ever.
