Rohingya crisis

As devastating rains hit Bangladesh, more than 650,000 Rohingya are now at grave risk due to landslides, flooding and the outbreak of disease.

Rohingya families need your support to help protect their children as the monsoon sets in.

In August 2017, violence forced more than 650,000 Rohingya people to flee Myanmar into neighbouring Bangladesh. More than half are women and children. Heavy rains and fierce winds now pose the most immediate threat to a situation the UN and aid agencies are calling a “disaster within a disaster”.

In what was the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world, the Rohingya settled in a small amount of land. Storms and floods are now amplifying this crisis, destroying roads, shelters and possessions and leaving people unable to access health clinics and other vital services. Heavy rains and powerful winds have torn through the camps, leaving behind crumpled shelters and families scrambling to rebuild.

Your support can help Save the Children in our response to this crisis. Our teams are on the ground repairing latrines and shelters damaged by the rains, providing food, water and safe spaces for children, and hygiene kits to stop disease spreading among already vulnerable people.

More help is urgently needed. Please donate today.
