Rohingya refugees need our help more than ever.
In August 2017, more than 740,000 Rohingya risked their lives to reach safety.
Men, women and children travelled for days and weeks with nothing but the clothes on their backs– trekking through jungle and mountains, and swapping their precious items to take the boat to Bangladesh. Many witnessed and endured horrific violence as they fled desperately from Myanmar; in need of immediate medical and psychosocial support.
Together, we have achieved so much to improve the lives of refugee families living in the camps, but there is still urgent work to be done.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, UNHCR is working tirelessly to protect Rohingya refugees in the densely populated camps through raising awareness and the distribution of sanitization kits to refugee families and members of the host community. We have also increased distribution of clean water, sanitation and health services.
