The Rohingya in our care once again need us very much

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
We provide an enriched diet and essential household products for

several dozen

the most vulnerable refugees.

The situation in the camp in Bangladesh continues to be difficult. The torrential monsoon rains and strong winds are relentless. They are causing further flash floods and landslides. According to initial reports, 12,000 camp residents have been affected and 2,500 huts are under water or have collapsed as a result of mudslides.

The situation has been escalating since Tuesday. For the time being, extreme rainfall is forecast for the next few days. It is still too early to observe and assess the scale of the damage.

In the last 24 hours alone, more than 300 mm of water has fallen in a place where nearly a million Rohingya have been living for years. This is almost half the average monthly rainfall for the entire month of July. The monsoon season will last another three months and the situation is further complicated by rigorous restrictions which have been implemented as a result of another wave of Covid-19 infections which is gaining momentum.

The people in our care need us very much again. Join the fundraiser! Together, let us respond to the most urgent needs of those who once again find themselves in a tragic situation.

Warm Package for Ukraine

We are providing humanitarian aid on site because the lethal danger is not only the falling rockets, but also the cold. Sleeping bags, warm blankets, paraffin lamps, rocket stoves, heaters, thermal clothing and high-energy meals: these are all things we are taking to Ukraine.
