Rohingya refugee crisis

More than 1.2 million Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh are completely destitute and living in abject poverty. They urgently need food, water and other basic necessities.


On August 25th, 2017, violence erupted between the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) and the Myanmar Army in Rakhine State, a northern region of Myanmar prone to conflict. Between August and October, over 600,000 Rohingya were forced to flee their homeland and make a perilous journey into Bangladesh, where there are now 816,000 refugees.

An unprecedented humanitarian crisis in the largest refugee camp in the world

This mass influx of refugees has triggered a large-scale humanitarian crisis. The urgency with which people had to escape exactions by the army and the extent of the displacements have increased the vulnerability of thousands of children, women and men who do not have access to basic necessities and services.
