More than half a million people from Rohingya have been forced to flee in order to escape the violence and persecution in Myanmar.
These victims take dangerous journeys in an attempt to reach safer grounds in the neighboring country of Bangladesh. These refugees, as well as the generous impoverished community that is hosting them, urgently need our help. The refugees in Bangladesh are still living in the same temporary plastic and bamboo shelters that were built when they first arrived. Monsoons and cyclones are very common in the area where they reside, making the already dire conditions even worse.
