Rohingya Crisis Appeal
Your donations are needed now!
U4H has been raising money for Rohingya Crisis Appeal since the start of the crisis.
The plight of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people is said to be the world’s fastest growing refugee crisis.
Risking death by sea or on foot, more than half a million have fled the destruction of their homes and persecution in the northern Rakhine province of Myanmar (Burma) for neighbouring Bangladesh since August 2017.
The United Nations described the military offensive in Rakhine, which provoked the exodus, as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.
Rohingyas are amongst the most oppressed community in the world. Over the past year, Rohingyas have seen massacres, homes set ablaze, village after village burned to the ground. Some have seen loved ones killed and have faced appalling human rights violations.
They have escaped into neighbouring Bangladesh, crowding into makeshift settlements. They’ve lost everything, and many are malnourished, exhausted and traumatised. Worrying numbers are arriving alone, separated from their families amid the chaos.
They are in urgent need of food, shelter and healthcare. And the risk of disease, exploitation, abuse and trafficking is high. A recent outbreak of diphtheria has seen the situation deteriorate further.
Unite 4 Humanity have been working with the Rohingya Refugees since the start of the crisis. Our aim is to continue working to help the oppressed community by bringing some sort of normality back into their lives.
