March 2021 Update:

A devastating fire has engulfed the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh.

10,000+ homes have been destroyed leaving over 100,000 people displaced and homeless once again. (these numbers are likely to increase once final numbers are known)

Drop of Compassion need your support to rebuild the lives and homes for those impacted by the fire. We are committed to helping as many people as possible with a minimum target to rehouse 500 families by the end of Ramadan.

With your help we have already built 1000 homes helping approximately more than 5000 beneficiaries with a safe place to live.

 

Present Crisis

More than 1.2 million Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar. 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.
