More than 650,000 Rohingya refugees have fled violence in Myanmar and crossed the border to Bangladesh since August 2017. These refugees, most of whom identify as Rohingya, are living in makeshift camps with little access to food, clean water or medical care. They are facing the threat of malnutrition and disease.
World Vision is working on the ground in Bangladesh to provide emergency food, water sanitation, and protection.
Many families still desperately need assistance. We urgently need your help to reach them.
One year after arriving in Bangladesh, 890,000 children and adults are still living in limbo in the world’s largest refugee camp.
