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

Rohingya Refugee Crisis

Health crisis looms for mothers and children as heavy monsoon rains batter the camps

As the Rohingya crisis continues amid torrential monsoon wind and rain, women and children are threatened by serious health and sanitation concerns, with overburdened facilities already pushed to their limits.

Currently only 20% of mothers are giving birth with a midwife present, while acute malnutrition has become a staggering problem for mother and baby alike; with 24% of refugees suffering from malnutrition, and almost half of children under five affected by severe stunting and anaemia. Without your support, young children will suffer lasting, life-changing impacts on their development and growth.

UNHCR is providing critical support to those suffering from malnutrition, and preventative nutritional support to children, and pregnant or nursing mothers who are most at risk. Our maternal care facilities support women through pregnancy and childbirth, but with only 35 trained maternal staff in the camps, we need every help in order to reach those most in need.

Get The FACTS About Our Health and Sanitation IMPACT

Safe Water
Primary Health Centres
Malnutrition Centres
Maternal Health Facilities
Safe water, sanitation and hygiene are among the most urgent priorities for saving lives, containing disease outbreaks, and protecting people already affected by malnutrition. So far, UNHCR has built over 3,500 new latrines and 320 safe water wells in the refugee camps in Bangladesh, while our target is to build and maintain 20,000 latrines in order to bring the densely populated camps up to safe standards.
UNHCR is supporting 25 health facilities that provide essential care to more than 250,000 refugees and members of the host community, with a further five ambulances in operation and a wealth of outreach services supported by 230 newly trained community health workers. However, given the overwhelming needs on the ground, we urgently need to secure 10 further ambulances and 170 additional staff.
UNHCR works with the World Food Programme (WFP) to ensure that all refugees have access to adequate nutrient-rich food. In acute situations such as the Rohingya crisis, where 24% of refugees are suffering from malnutrition, and almost half of children under five affected by severe stunting and anaemia, we are supporting emergency nutrition and therapeutic feeding programs through our 21 malnutrition centres reaching approximately 1,500 children a month.
Through our primary health centres and 35 trained maternal staff, we are supporting 55 safe births a month, and as many as 650 ante-natal and follow up appointments. With an estimated 52,800 pregnant and lactating women in the camps, where only one-fifth of women are giving birth with a trained attendant present, we are working on expanding the reach of our maternal services, especially to those vulnerable to malnutrition.
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 and their families to receive important health and safety messages. Education also helps people rebuild their communities and pursue productive, meaningful lives.

As the monsoon season hits Bangladesh

Thousands of families are now being evacuated from damaged shelters and moved to safer grounds


Torrential rains, floods and landslides have already damaged shelters, hospitals, communal areas and water points, and have left around 2,500 Rohingya refugee families in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. With at least two more months of dramatic monsoon weather to come, many have already been injured and at least one fatality recorded – a child.
UNHCR is working around the clock 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 safe shelters, food, clean water and medical support.
Around 200,000 refugees are estimated to be living in areas that are vulnerable to landslides and floods. So far we have relocated more than 37,400 refugees most at risk, but our pressing work continues.
We urge you to donate today so that we can continue to help those most in need.
