Let us restore their dignity by supporting them in a grim reality

Bangladesh

It is one of the most densely populated and at the same time the poorest countries in the world. There are more than one thousand inhabitants here per one square kilometer. The country’s population is almost 150 million. In the neighboring Myanmar, since mid-2017, thousands of the Rohingya people have lost their lives, their villages have been burned down, and the survivors approached the border with Bangladesh. Within several months, more than 750 refugees settled in the border area.

Overview:
  • The UN has been calling persecution of the Rohingya an ethnic cleansing
  • The Rohingya are the most persecuted ethnic group today
  • the world’s largest refugee camp, home to approximately 920,000 Rohingya, is located near the city of Cox’s Bazar
  • 55% of the camp residents are children

For as long as she can remember she has lived with the stigma of being Rohingya. In her youth, she still had a Burmese identity card. Her children and grandchildren no longer do. Amina died yesterday in the largest refugee camp in the world. She had no rights; she didn’t belong anywhere. The world had shown her that she had no place in it.

We supported Amina over the last years by providing her with the bare minimum she needed. Thanks to you, she was not hungry. However, we were not able to do anything more for her. No one was. More than one million Rohingya people almost five years after fleeing genocide are living in a giant closed camp in Bangladesh. No one wants to give them asylum, and returning to their homeland is certain death.

In 1982, the country’s authorities determined that followers of Islam from the Rohingya tribe could no longer consider themselves Burmese. It was then that, overnight, their identity documents became invalid. From then on, they were stigmatised, humiliated and treated in an inhumane manner. They lost their rights to defend themselves, to be able to do anything.

We cannot restore to them the rights that every human being should have. The only thing we can do is to show them love, to restore their dignity by supporting them in a grim reality.

This can be done by each of us by visiting GoodWorks 24/7.
