Conflict in Myanmar has forced over 164,000 Rohingya to flee their homes to Bangladesh forming a new humanitarian crisis.
Children, women and families are escaping and leaving their homes and everything they own behind, and walking for long, exhausting journeys in uncertainty seeking safety in strained Bangladesh refugee camps. They are hungry, in poor physical condition and in need of life-saving support after their terrible ordeal.
Treated worse than animals, this dehumanisation of the Rohingya people has become ethnic cleansing in Myanmar. Human rights violations and destruction are rife, with women raped, children abused and villages burned to the ground.
Homes, shops and entire villages are being burned to the ground. The refugees fleeing the violence have crossed the border injured and ill and need urgent medical attention. The camps in Bangladesh do not have sufficient resources to treat the injured or feed the many that haven't eaten in days.
