BANGLADESH ROHINGYA REFUGEE CRISIS – URGENT FUNDS NEEDED
Nearly 700,00 people have crossed from Myanmar’s Rakhine state to Bangladesh since August 2017, and hundreds more are arriving weekly. This is an unprecedented number of refugees arriving in a very short period of time, and represents a large and escalating humanitarian crisis.
Rohingya refugees living in makeshift camps in Bangladesh now face further disaster, as monsoon rains and possible cyclones will cause floods and landslides and increase the risk of deadly disease.
Oxfam is there, working with local organizations and the government to help provide people with access to desperately needed food. We’re helping people stay healthy by installing toilets and showers, building and repairing wells and sewage systems, delivering hundreds of thousands of liters of chlorinated water daily, and talking about good hygiene.
