Having fled violence and persecution in their homeland of Myanmar, nearly one million Rohingya refugees are now living in unbearable conditions in refugee camps in Bangladesh. Their misery has been compounded by months of monsoon floods which have washed away homes, roads and food reserves and spread disease.
The people living in the camp have absolutely nothing, many of them are traumatised by the atrocities they have suffered in Myanmar and illness and malnutrition are rife, especially among children. 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.
One of the few British Muslim charities with permission to distribute aid inside the camp - we have the capability to deliver help where it’s most needed. So far, we have reached over 326,500 people with life-saving aid and now we are working to reach many more with food, safe water, healthcare and psycho-social care.
The number of families in dire need is rising daily and set to get much worse as the full effect of the monsoon season becomes apparent. Act now and provide the most persecuted people in the world with life-saving relief.
