Bangladesh Rohingya Refugee Crisis
You can help save the lives of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh
More than 600,000 Rohingya refugees have crossed over to Bangladesh from Northern Rakhine State in Myanmar. Almost a quarter are pregnant women, new mothers and children under five.
Crowded together in makeshift camps with little or no food, shelter and clean drinking water, the risk of waterborne diseases is alarmingly high. Women, girls and children are also particularly vulnerable to sexual violence.
We are on the ground, and have reached over 185,000 of the most vulnerable people with clean drinking water, portable toilets, sanitation facilities and other essential supplies.
We can prevent the worst from happening. But we must act now.
Note: Should the funds raised exceed the amount required to meet the immediate and longer term needs of the people in the affected areas, Oxfam Australia will direct donations to our International Crisis Fund to enable us to rapidly address emergencies as they occur.
