Rohingya Refugee Crisis
In past weeks, over 500.000 people of Rohingya minority fled Myamar and took refuge in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. They have had to travel on foot for many days before reaching Bangladesh. Most of them are very sick from mental and physical stress, starvation and injury.
Since 1982, under the regime of General Ne Win they were excluded from Burmese citizenship and therefore became stateless. In recent years they also became victims of ethnic cleansing through murder, torture, rape and abuse inflicted upon them.
Due to a massive influx of Rohingya refugees in the southern part of Cox’s Bazar, a huge humanitarian crisis has unfolded.
The refugees are in dire need of shelter, food, clothing and medical treatment.
We must join forces to help them. Your help is very important for our efforts to serve this refugee community. Please donate generously.
