More than 1.2 million Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar since October. As a stateless Muslim minority group in Myanmar, they have faced discrimination, violence and extreme poverty for decades.
The latest exodus began on 25 August 2017, when violence broke out in Myanmar’s Rakhine State. The vast majority of Rohingya refugees reaching Bangladesh are women and children, including newborn babies. Many others are elderly people requiring additional aid and protection. They have nothing and need everything.
This is the current state of the Rohingya refugees and their living conditions:
Women and children fleeing from Myanmar’s Rakhine State into Bangladesh have reported experiencing or witnessing brutal acts of violence – accounts which point to grave human rights violations.
