Supporting Rohingya Women - Five Years On

Thank you so much for your support of this project. I’m writing to share some updates from ActionAid’s emergency response to support Rohingya Refugee Women. We appreciate you taking the time to learn about and act in response to this crisis.

The Rohingya people have now been displaced from their homes in Myanmar for five years, with almost a million of them living in refugee camps in Bangladesh. The majority of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh are women and children, and over 40% are under the age of 12. ActionAid was one of the first responders to the Rohingya crisis in Bangladesh in 2017 and since then, has been engaged in supporting the affected population with different initiatives. Through our work in Bangladesh, we have provided dignity kits during disasters, psychosocial care by engaging women and young and adolescent girls in safe spaces, counselling services for managing and mitigating gender-based violence, and important information on critical lifesaving services. Through these different interventions, ActionAid Bangladesh works directly with over 380,000 people, including people both from the Rohingya community, in 32 camps, and the host community.

Farah Kabir, Country Director of ActionAid Bangladesh, reports that “International leaders have failed to secure a safe and dignified migration for the Rohingyas to their homeland. This is frustrating for both the Rohingya people and human rights advocates. Rohingyas undoubtedly deserve justice and a safe future. The international community must now come together to ensure that happens.” As the crisis continues, ActionAid will continue to support Rohingya women. 

Now more than ever, your commitment to justice makes a difference. Thank you for your support and solidarity.
