Rohingya: The Forgotten People

In the last few years, tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims living in Myanmar have been forced out of their homes. Many of them are now living in squalid conditions in slums and makeshift camps.

Muslim Hands has been building homes in Myanmar since 2008. These family homes are made of local wood and bamboo, with iron sheet roofing and every home is also fitted with a mosquito and fly-proof latrine. As the plight of Rohingya Muslims continues we will be constructing more sustainable housing to shelter homeless families.

However, our continuing efforts are only possible because of your support. So join us for an unforgettable night and show our brothers and sisters in Rohingya they haven't been forgotten.
