Rohingya refugee crisis

Since 25 August 2017, a massive exodus of over 700,000 Rohingya people have fled Myanmar.

The Rohingya people are one of the most persecuted minority groups in the world. Following a concerted campaign of extreme violence by the Myanmar authorities against Rohingya people in Myanmar’s Rakhine state in August 2017, over 700,000 Rohingya fled over the border into the Cox's Bazar district of Bangladesh.

In December 2017, surveys we conducted in the refugee camps found that at least 6,700 Rohingya were killed by violent means in Myanmar between 25 of August and 24 of September 2017. At least 730 were children under five years of age.

Today, over 900,000 Rohingya live in Cox's Bazar. Living conditions in the refugee camps there are dire. Many people lack access to clean water, sanitation, health care and shelter. Outbreaks of multiple vaccine-preventable diseases have sprung up among the population. Given the trauma many have experienced, mental health support needs are acute.

We have significantly scaled up our existing medical, water and sanitation efforts in support of the needs.
