Thousands of refugees in need after heavy rains devastate camps

Rohingya refugees urgently need your help today.

Severe rainfall brought devastating floods and landslides to the Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar in the final days of July. Tragically, six refugees and 15 Bangladeshis lost their lives, and over 6,418 shelters were destroyed or damaged, affecting more than 21,000 refugees and leaving as many as 13,000 without shelter. Medical centres, distribution points, roads and pathways were also badly damaged.

“I felt helpless, I didn’t understand where to go,” said Meher, a Rohingya grandmother who lives in the camps with her family. “The water was rising so fast that we couldn’t go back. Most of our belongings were washed away.”

As rain continues to fall, our emergency teams are on the ground providing critical support, shelter and relief items to the affected families. We’re also relocating families to safe areas, and working closely with our partners to deliver hot meals through a network of 1,600 volunteer refugee emergency responders who have already undergone training.

Since August 2017, more than 743,000 Rohingya refugees fled violence and persecution in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. Families have already endured too much, and are still recovering from the latest tragedy when huge fires swept through the camps in March this year.

Rohingya refugees need our solidarity and support today more than ever.
