Supporting discriminated Rohingya refugees

Since August 2017 more than 607.000 Rohingya have fled the escalating ethnical conflict in Myanmar. Most of the refugees have survived violence in their home country and suffered severely on their passage to Bangladesh. In Bangladesh they are protected from discrimination, but they are not entirely safe: The refugee camps are tensely crowded; the risk of infections like cholera is alarmingly high. Having left everything behind, they are in dire need of food and water, shelter, clothing as well as psychological support. Furthermore, heavy monsoon rains are flooding the camps.

„We were forced to leave our country to survive”, Zakir* tells us. Once he was working as a volunteer for World Vision. Now he and his family depend on the humanitarian distributions of food, water and hygiene items. “There is simply no way to earn your living. As a refugee, you don’t have another option to survive“.

The aid workers of our coalition are relentlessly supporting the refugees. Medical teams are treating injured refugees or carry out much needed health check-ups for pregnant women like Zakir’s* wife. To compensate the lack of fresh water, a quick response team of ASB has installed several mobile water treatment plants. With these plants, several thousand people have now access to fresh water.

We are very grateful that you support the work of our coalition. Your donation enabled us to increase our various support to people in need. Thank you!
