Rohingya Crisis Appeal

Unimaginable horrors, one year on

A year has passed since over 700,000 people fled Myanmar for their lives, half of them children. They've escaped unimaginable horrors - shootings, rapes and abuses.

Families who managed to flee are now battling the daily challenges of life in the refugee camps in Bangladesh. In the cramped, crowded and unhygienic conditions, there is a major risk of an outbreak of disease.

Over the last year, we have been working around the clock to protect these families. We remain as committed today as the day we launched our appeal. 

We’ve recently established the first inpatient health centre providing vital 24/7 care. Just one week after it opened, the first baby was delivered on our maternity ward – mother Humaira* gave birth to baby Rozina*.
