Emergency appeal for Rohingya Crisis
Help urgently needed for Rohingya fleeing violence
In the early hours of 25 August, violence broke out in Rakhine State, Myanmar. As a result of the violence in North Rakhine families are being forced to flee their homes and walk for days to find safety across the border.
Most of the Rohingya refugees are women and children. Many people have been injured and are exhausted as they arrive in makeshift camps in Bangladesh. They are sick, exhausted and in desperate need of food, clean water and medical aid.
Most have walked for days, bringing with them harrowing stories of violence. Reports suggest that nearly 400,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar over the past few weeks, with numbers increasing every day. These refugees need life-saving assistance now. Many are without shelter or clean water.
Humanity First is actively working with its partners on the ground to ensure essential needs are met. With your help we can ensure that those in need are assisted as best possible.
