Rohingya Refugee Relief Fund

by GlobalGiving
Rohingya Refugee Relief Fund

Summary

Extreme violence and persecution in Myanmar's Rakhine State have caused more than 900,000 Rohingya people, an ethnic and religious minority, to flee their homes in search of safety. Leaving nearly all their possessions behind, the majority of the Rohingya people have fled across the border into Bangladesh. This fund will exclusively support relief efforts by vetted organizations working in the area that are providing emergency assistance and ongoing support to those in need.

Challenge

Since Aug. 25, 2017, the Rohingya population in Myanmar has been subjected to extreme violence and has been forced to flee their homes. There have been reports of helicopters firing on civilians, extrajudicial executions of women and children, and the burning of entire villages. The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights called the situation a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing," and the crisis has caused a mass exodus of the Rohingya people across the border into Bangladesh.

Solution

This fund will support life-saving assistance and relief efforts for Rohingya people displaced by violence and conflict, specifically in and around the refugee camps in the Cox's Bazar area of Bangladesh and neighboring settlements. Your support will help survivors and victims get necessary immediate relief supplies like food and hygiene kits, as well as provide longer-term support through activities like the construction of much needed medical clinics and field hospitals.

Long-Term Impact

Our partners are working to ensure that Rohingya refugees can lead safe, hopeful, and productive lives. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds are used; subscribers will receive these reports via email.

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
