Shockingly brutal attacks on the minority Rohingya community in Myanmar have left thousands dead and hundreds of thousands fleeing to neighbouring Bangladesh in search of safety. Over 1 million Rohingya refugees live in the refugee camps in the Cox’s Bazaar and Teknaf areas on the coast of this poverty stricken and tiny but densely populated country.
Freshly fleeing refugees still arrive daily in Bangladesh, facing a wretched future crammed into squalid camps. Prone to cyclones, floods, landslides and earthquakes, the refugee camps are in locations incredibly vulnerable to climatic change. What’s more, ongoing conflict is threatening the safety and wellbeing of countless families The Rohingya people have literally been through the wars but their plight has largely been forgotten or unnoticed by the international community and they desperately need our help.
