The Rohingya have been persecuted for decades, but the worsening conflict has put these already-vulnerable people in even more danger over recent months.
Since August 2017, the Rakhine State, Myanmar (Burma), historically home to many of the Rohingya, has been suffering through a worsening state of emergency. To date, it is estimated that over 850,000 people have lost their lives as a result of the ongoing conflict – a worrying statistic.
Similarly, some of the most essential supplies are in high demand and short supply. This means that many vital resources like food, shelter, medical supplies, and clean water are simply not accessible. Add to this the very real threat of exploitation for the most vulnerable members of society – orphans, young people, and the elderly – and you begin to see just how much of a challenge daily life is for the Rohingya in Myanmar (Burma) and Bangladesh.

Since my father died, my mother worked as a seller to support the family. However, her earnings were not enough, so we had to move to my Uncle’s house when I was in second grade.
While busy in struggling to meetup our needs, we were unaware that another crisis is waiting just around the corner. Due to the most recent outbreak of conflict in Myanmar, we had to flee our homes and communities for survival.”
