Rohingya Crisis - Shelter Tent
“The most persecuted people on earth.” - UN
A fresh outbreak of violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state last week has caused tens of thousands of Rohingya civilians to flee their homes. The UN now says 313,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since the end of August as their villages (their homes and livelihoods) have been burnt. Most are women, children and the elderly.
- Over 1 million Rohingya have fled Myanmar to escape persecution
- Over 200,000 Rohingya refugees have crossed into Bangladesh in the past few years
- 400,00 more men, women and children left displaced inside Myanmar
Muslim Hands has been supporting Rohingya families since 2008, providing emergency aid, including during Ramadan and Qurbani, and also building shelter homes for displaced men, women and children.
