Since August 25, some 615,000 Rohingya refugees have fled horrifying violence and rampant discrimination in Myanmar, according to aid agencies. The Rohingya are an ethnic minority that have been denied education, employment, property, and citizenship by Myanmar, according to Human Rights Watch. Now, that discrimination has turned to violence, forcing the Rohingya to flee the country they have called home for generations.
In response to the crisis, nonprofit organizations have set up refugee camps in Bangladesh and Myanmar to help protect, feed, and house the Rohingya. However, they need help to continue their work.
