Thank you for your generous contribution to the Rohingya Refugee Relief Fund. Donations to this GlobalGiving fund continue to make a difference for Rohingya as they continue to be displaced and face violence and natural hazards across several countries. 

Since our last update, we made four emergency grants to high-impact and community-led nonprofit organizations, all thanks to your support.  Our partner organizations are working with Rohingya communities in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia and Myanmar. These partners are working hard to provide support to Rohingya in a way that centers their urgent needs and helps address the trauma they’ve endured.

Here is a short description of some of the critical work you’ve supported:  

  • Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network (APRRN)is partnering with Rohingya and refugee-led organizations in Bangladesh and Myanmar, supporting communities who often have limited access to resources. The APRRN will assess urgent needs toward better outcomes for mental health and psychosocial support, food security, and protection for Rohingya. 
  • Malaysian Relief Agency (MRA) is providing education services for Rohingya children in Malaysia. The organization is also delivering health services to Rohingya—a critical offering as many refugees do not have the funds for the treatments nor the legal status in Malaysia to access essential care. MRA additionally provides a critical coordination service for asylum-seekers arriving in Malaysia who have taken dangerous journeys by sea. 
  • Yayasan Dompet Dhuafa Republika is providing nutritious meals, hygiene kits, medical care, and emergency aid to Rohingya across Indonesia. This includes in Aceh, where boats of Rohingya refugees continue to arrive from camps in Bangladesh and elsewhere, facing discrimination and violence upon arrival. 
  • Mobile Mini Circus for Children is training youth teams who carry out regular psychosocial, entertainment, and educational workshops, as well as performances for thousands of refugee children across Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. These workshops bring much-needed psychosocial care to children who are living in protracted refugeehood and deteriorating conditions.  

Your support of the GlobalGiving Rohingya Refugee Relief Fund continues to power community-led responses to address the urgent and long-term needs of Rohingya as durable solutions remain elusive. 

As we reflect on the reality of 8+ years of crisis and displacement for the Rohingya, GlobalGiving remains committed to serving Rohingya refugees with your help. 

With immense gratitude, 

Kyra, Sarah + the GlobalGiving Team

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.
