Rohingya Refugee Crisis Appeal
All We Can and the Methodist Church in Britain are calling for support for this urgent appeal for refugees displaced by the recent escalation of violence in Myanmar.
Over the past few weeks, more than half a million people have fled violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State. The majority of those fleeing are Rohingya women and children.
Since violence flared up in Myanmar in late August 2017, an estimated 700,000 Rohingya have sought shelter and safety in Bangladesh. Many are currently living in temporary unsanitary structures constructed out of plastic sheeting and bamboo in informal camps and settlements. Refugees are arriving in Bangladesh exhausted and traumatised and camps and local host communities are struggling to respond to the scale of this disaster.
All We Can and the Methodist Church in Britain are calling for generous support for this urgent appeal to assist those seeking refuge in Bangladesh. People are in desperate need of water, food, shelter and access to medical care.
