One year on, your contributions are still making a difference to Rohingya refugees.

On 25 August 2017, violence erupted in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, sparking the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world. Since then, over 720,000 Rohingya men, women and children have fled to Bangladesh in search of safety.

Although many have reached safety, the dangers are far from over. Torrential rains and gale-force winds during monsoon season put hundreds of thousands of lives at serious risk and wreaked havoc on the water and sanitation systems in the makeshift settlements.   

In order to prevent a public health crisis from occurring, UNHCR is now leading efforts to get clean water, sanitation and health services to these families. We urgently need your help.

What can you do to help?

A gift today will help provide:

> Emergency rescue kits to offer families shelter.
> Thousands of latrines and water points for refugees to access clean water.
> Vital supplies to health centres to treat the sick and prevent disease outbreaks.  

Your donation will help provide families forced to flee with on-going relief and protection.
