Having fled violence and persecution in their homeland of Myanmar, nearly 1 million Rohingya refugees living in already squalid conditions in refugee camps in Bangladesh are now being hit with powerful monsoon floods. The floods have so far affected nearly 19,000 people and the numbers are rising daily. Shelters are being washed away, food reserves destroyed, and dirty water is being spread all over the camps.
Muslim Hands has been working with the Rohingya community since 2008 and we have a dedicated office in Cox’s Bazar, right at the heart of the refugee crisis and now home to the world’s largest refugee camp. The people living in the camp have absolutely nothing, having fled for their lives with only the clothes on their backs.
One of the few British Muslim charities with permission to distribute aid inside the refugee camps - we have the capability to deliver help where it’s most needed. So far, we have reached over 140,000 people with life-saving aid and now, as the monsoon rains wreak havoc, we need your help to reach many more.
The number of people in dire need is rising daily and set to get much worse over the monsoon period. Act now and help us provide clean water and sanitation to thousands of people, give children the nutrition and vitamins they need, and bring medical aid to people who desperately need it.
