After fleeing violence in Myanmar, almost one million Rohingya refugees are living in overcrowded camps in Bangladesh.
In Cox’s Bazar refugee camp, shelters are made of bamboo and tarpaulin, offering little protection from the elements. Many are built on hillsides or in low-lying areas and are at risk of being swept away in flash flooding or landslides.
Already, floodwaters are damaging homes and community facilities, forcing refugees to evacuate.
Rohingya refugees are extraordinarily resilient. But they are facing hunger and malnutrition, while monsoons threaten to destroy the only homes they have left.
Please send help to Rohingya refugees now.
The majority of funds raised by Australia for UNHCR are directed to UNHCR’s emergency operations, providing the ready funds and resources to respond quickly and effectively in situations of crisis and disaster.
