Violent and deadly attacks on entire villages in Myanmar’s western state of Rakhine have left over 600,000 Rohingya fleeing for their lives.
A mostly Muslim minority, the Rohingya are not formally recognised as belonging to Myanmar and have faced years of persecution. When conflict erupted on 25 August 2017, the Rohingya were left with no option but to flee for their lives.
Families are arriving at the border of Bangladesh hungry, thirsty, and afraid, with no belongings to speak of. Refugee camps are overflowing. Rohingya refugees are desperate, utterly exhausted, and their children are close to starvation.
Baptist World Aid Australia is responding to this crisis through our Christian partner in the field, Medair.
We urgently need your support to help children, women, and men who have nothing.
