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.
