Save Rohingya Refugees

It’s been estimated by the UN that since 25th August, almost 500,00 Rohingya refugees have crossed over into Bangladesh as their villages – and with it their homes and livelihoods – have been burnt, with 400,00 more men, women and children left displaced inside Myanmar itself.

With ongoing unrest in the region for many years, a total of one million Rohingya refugees have fled Myanmar to escape persecution and now a staggering 250,000 people in the area have now also been left without regular access to food.

At Muslim Hands, we’ve been supporting families in Myanmar since 2008, providing essential aid, including Ramadan and Qurbani aid, and also building shelter homes for displaced men, women and children.

As thousands of families find themselves in crisis, we’re now calling on you to help support our work and help provide essential aid for Rohingya refugees in desperate need.
