Rohingya Exodus - 6 months


Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya are living in Bangladesh after fleeing targeted violence in Myanmar.

The Cox’s Bazar district on Bangladesh's southeast coast has hosted Rohingya refugees fleeing targeted violence in neighbouring Myanmar's Rakhine state since 1978. The latest campaign of violence, which began in late August 2017, has provoked an unprecedented exodus.

Before August 2017, we had one project in Cox’s Bazar and one in Kamrangirchar, a slum area of the capital, Dhaka. After more than 700,000 Rohingya refugees fled violence in Myanmar from August 2017, we launched additional emergency projects.
