Since August 25, 2017, nearly 600,000 Rohingya children, women and men have been forced to flee their homes due to deadly violence. They undertake difficult and dangerous journeys to find safety in Bangladesh. Whole families, young mothers and unaccompanied minors are among those desperate to escape the fighting with their lives. Many walk barefoot for days, wading through vast rice fields. They arrive in Bangladesh hungry, in poor physical condition and in need of urgent support.
The UN Refugee Agency is on the ground in Bangladesh providing lifesaving aid to Rohingya refugees, but resources are stretched thin. You can help rush critical aid including food, clean water, medicine and tents to desperate Rohingya children and families.
