Rohingya families urgently need shelter ahead of monsoon rains

Over 650,000 Rohingya refugees were forced to flee violence and persecution in Myanmar since August 25.

Already crowded UNHCR refugee camps in Bangladesh were the destiny of tens of thousands new arrivals, pushing them to expansion to meet the new needs for shelter. The Kutupalong and Nayapara camps, host to 34,000 refugees prior to the crisis, now host nearly 370,000 refugees.

UNHCR’s shelter program, which began to provide emergency shelters to new arrivals, is now entering another phase. Ahead of the monsoon rains and cold, the low-lying land of the camps, specifically Kutupalong which is interspersed with rolling hills, will be susceptible to landslides and flash floods.

Trying to avoid any possible tragedy, UNHCR started working to re-position and weatherproof up to 150,000 shelters in Bangladesh before March. 30,000 shelter kits have been distributed by UNHCR refugees so far.

Shelter kits include structural bamboo, bamboo sticks, ropes and plastic sheeting. Shelter support is part of the lifesaving aid that UNHCR is providing to Rohingya refugees, in addition to food, clean water and medical care.

Due to a shortfall in funding, we urgently need your support to be able to respond to the needs of the most vulnerable.

Your donation can alleviate the sufferings of thousands.

We need your support in order to:
1. Tackle rising malnutrition.
2. Provide support to malnourished refugees on arrival to UNHCR protected areas.
3. Prevent and contain diseases, which can make malnutrition worse.
4. Ensure treatment for those who are malnourished.
5. Ensure that families are protected in the Longer Term.
6. Provide support for pregnant women and new mums.
