The situation has spiralled into the world’s fastest developing refugee emergency.
— United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres

More than 600,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar since August of 2017. They have no choice but to live in crowded and unsanitary camps, where medicine and adequate food are scarce. 

We work with partners, such as the UK-based Human Relief Foundation, to bring relief to the Rohingya. We personally visited the Kutupalong camp in Bangladesh in November 2017, and we were, at once, incredibly impressed by the work of our partners and devastated by the conditions in which so many souls have been forced to live.
