Your Sadaqah will restore hope to a refugee family who lost everything. This Ramadan, when you give Sadaqah to a refugee family, you will help provide them with cash assistance so they can afford rent, clean water, food and medicines and to help keep their children safe from cheap labour, exploitation and early marriage threats.

Thank you

Monsoon rains batter Rohingya refugee settlements in Bangladesh

Torrential rains, floods, and landslides have already damaged shelters, hospitals, communal areas and water points, and a further 200,000 Rohingya refugees remain at great risk. This is just the start of the monsoon season, but many have already been injured and at least one fatality is recorded – a child.
UNHCR is working around the clock in with its partners and the Bangladeshi Government to respond to these urgent needs: getting help to the injured and trapped, evacuating and relocating affected families to safer grounds and providing them with shelter, food, clean water and medical support.
We urge you to donate today so that we can continue to help those most in need.

Providing Shelter
Providing Supplies
Providing Food
Providing Education
Providing Protection
UNHCR provides refugees with emergency shelter — tents, tarpaulins and demountable housing — in the immediate aftermath of displacement. After the overwhelming influx of Rohingya refugees in August, we are now working around the clock to provide site planning and camp management to ensure refugee housing is safe to withstand the monsoon, as well as economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.
UNHCR distributes life-sustaining items such as mattresses, blankets, kitchen sets, jerrycans, stoves and fuel, soap and other sanitary items to refugees under its care. These supplies are tailored to the specific needs of the refugee population: for Rohingya refugees we are providing emergency shelter kits, as well as clean water and medical supplies. UNHCR maintains global stockpiles of core relief items for immediate delivery in emergency situations.
Malnutrition is a common consequence of conflict and displacement. UNHCR works with the World Food Programme (WFP) to ensure that all refugees have access to adequate nutrient-rich food. UNHCR assists with the distribution of food rations in camps and provides urban refugees with vouchers and cash assistance for the purchase of food and groceries. In acute situations such as the Rohingya crisis, UNHCR supports emergency nutrition and therapeutic feeding programs, supplying fortified milks and ready-to-use therapeutic foods.
Education is a crucial part of refugee relief, even in emergencies. School provides a safe and stable environment for children, restoring their sense of normality and routine, and allowing them to receive important health and safety messages. Education also helps people rebuild their communities and pursue productive, meaningful lives. Where refugees live in the community, UNHCR negotiates with governments to allow them access to local schools. In refugee camps, UNHCR promotes education for children and adults, operating schools and vocational training programs.
Children and families fleeing violence, war, disaster or persecution can be very vulnerable. UNHCR supplies displaced people with essential items, food and shelter to protect them from having to make dangerous decisions to survive. On a larger scale, UNHCR negotiates safe passage, asylum spaces and humanitarian access, upholding the rights of refugees and minimising the threat of violence, including sexual assault.

The Rohingya crisis: the story so far


It was during the Monsoon season last year that more than 671,000 Rohingya refugees arrived in Bangladesh fleeing violence in Myanmar. Whole families, young mothers, and unaccompanied minors were among those who came by boat or walked barefoot for days, wading through vast rice fields. Large groups crossed into south-eastern Bangladesh hungry, in poor physical condition and in need of emergency care. We heard some of the most horrific stories of violence during those days. By mid-September, the Bangladeshi Government allocated some 2,000 acres of land on which family tents and temporary communal shelters were erected to shelter new arrivals. UNHCR, its partners, and the generous local community in Bangladesh has been working to provide life-saving support ever since.

Bangladesh is one of the most flood-prone countries in the world, and the monsoon season threatens to destroy the precarious set up that many refugees made during the chaos of the initial influx. We have witnessed the monsoon before, and we are doing everything we can to prevent a further tragedy now, for those who have suffered too much already.
