Over 500,000 people, with 80% estimated to be women and children, have crossed the border into Bangladesh, according to latest reports.
The Rohingya Muslims, who are estimated to be at a population of 1.3 million, are described by the UN as the most persecuted people in the world.
WF-Aid is now working with partners who are on the borders of Bangladesh and Myanmar, and are receiving tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees each day.
People are arriving with no belongings and are in desperate need of immediate medical attention, after suffering from violence in their homeland. Most have also undertaken a gruelling journey to reach safety, which has left them hungry, in despair and in need of shelter.
You can provide life-changing emergency medical aid to desperate Rohingya families for £150.
The number of people in need of emergency and basic healthcare continues to grow, with supplies running critically low. With another influx of refugees expected during the coming week, your donations will make a life-transforming difference to those in urgent need.
Give £40 towards emergency food now and help save lives.
There are still thousands of internally displaced Rohingya Muslims living in camps outside the Rakhine State capital Sittwe. Many are living in over-crowded make-shift housing, where disease can easily spread. The situation has become worse since humanitarian aid has been restricted in camps and the rest of Rakhine—leaving hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people in desperate need.
Their freedom of movement and access to health care, education and basic necessities have been severely restricted, leaving vulnerable people hungry and at risk of getting sick.
WF-AID is stepping in to support the internally displaced Rohingya Muslims, by delivering life-saving emergency aid, which includes food, medical treatment and shelter.
Donate now and save lives.
