Rohingya Refugee Relief:
What's Happening and How to Help

Years of strife and conflict between the ethnic minority Rohingya people of Rakhine state in Myanmar and the forces of the Burmese government have escalated since 2016. The military has been accused of gross human rights violations leading the United Nations to levy charges of ethnic cleansing and possible crimes against humanity. Amidst the conflict, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya are fleeing their homes in search of safety in Bangladesh. These refugees face hunger, malnutrition, infection, disease, and other medical ailments, and desperately need access to healthcare and other lifesaving support.

Each of the projects below will support Rohingya refugee relief efforts led by GlobalGiving’s vetted nonprofit partners. This list of responding organizations and their recovery projects will continue to grow as our partners in the affected areas have the capacity to post projects and updates.

Medical Clinics for Rohingya Refugees

Just 2.50 will pay for a consultation and treatment.
Dignity Kits for Rohingya Refugee Women
Millions of refugee women are currently living in dire conditions in camps without basic everyday essentials like food, clothes and warmth. For these refugees, being a woman means that they are also deprived of feminine hygiene products to manage their period, which adds to the hardship. Global One is providing essential Dignity Kits complete with a menstrual cup/pack of sanitary towels, soap and shampoo to female Rohingya refugees.

The Rohingya refugees fleeing to Bangladesh need food, shelter, clean water and medical aid, but they need more than that - they desperately need accurate information on how they can access these services and they need to know what is happening around them.

Myanmar-Bangladesh Refugee Crisis
During the early hours of 25 August, violence erupted in Rakhine State when insurgents launched deadly ambushes on police posts. The resulting crossfire and security crackdown have triggered the mass movement of tens of thousands of people, most of whom are women and children. To date, an estimated more than 400,000 people have crossed the border into Bangladesh, including 200,000 children ages 4-14 years, based on consolidated field reports of aid agencies working in Cox's Bazar.

Help to Set-up Mobile Clinic for Rohingya Refugee
Our project will set up a mobile clinic to provide primary healthcare support to the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and also to help them in getting advance services when needed through developing a network with advanced healthcare hospitals in the mainland. It should be noted here that Rohingya refugees are taking shelter in different places. They are not allowed to travel in the main land freely. Therefore, a mobile clinic may provide necessary primary healthcare support effectively.
Addressing the Urgent Needs of the Rohingyas
600,000 Rohingya have been displaced from their homes through systematic, brutal violence carried out with extreme prejudice and complete lack of sympathy by the Myanmar military on their own citizens. Fleeing from certain torture and eradication they have been coming into Bangladesh in the thousands every day since the 25 August, 2017. Though the Bangladesh government and many NGOs have taken strides towards addressing their urgent needs, it is not hold a candle to the demand.

Diabetes Care Center for Rohingya Refugees by DAB
Diabetes is a life-long disease. If not taken care of properly, it causes severe diseases like arrhythmia, hypertension, blindness, etc. It is spreading all over the world so quickly that WHO announced it an epidemic. On the contrary, the motto of Diabetic Association of Bangladesh is to provide diabetes care to all who are living in Bangladesh, free of cost. So it has taken up a plan to set up a Center in Rohingya refugee camp to provide diabetes care to RR so that they can live a normal life.
