Challenge

On August 25, 2017, violence broke out in Rakhine State, Myanmar and more than 600,000 Rohingyas have fled, crossing the border into Bangladesh. Large numbers of people are arriving every day in densely packed sites on the Bangladesh border seeking safety, and it's clear that many more will cross before the situation stabilizes.

Solution

ActionAid has served more than 65,000 refugees by providing food, emergency shelter items such as tarpaulins, as well as clean water and hygiene kits to support their basic needs. Our team has an expertise in emergency disaster response that works through the leadership of our local Bangladeshi team and always centers the rights of women and girls.

Long-Term Impact

Your support now will help ActionAid respond to these immediate needs and adapt as this unpredictable situation evolves, especially through the cyclone and monsoon seasons this summer. ActionAid has been working in Myanmar since 2001 and is committed to supporting the Rohingya people for years to come as they claim their rights.
