My name is Asadujjaman, I am 19 years old and I am looking for sponsorship for Myanmar ROHINGYA to help me fund my trip to where I will be volunteering at the refugee camp from the end of November 2018 to mid-January 2019.
A military crackdown and associated vigilante violence in Myanmar have forced 300,000 to 400,000 Muslim Rohingya to seek safety in Bangladesh. The country's actions, which followed an Aug. 25 attack by Rohingya insurgents on police and military outposts, have elicited condemnation from the Muslim world, have prompted the U.N. high commissioner for human rights to call the situation a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing," and have sullied the human rights reputation of Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar's de facto leader and the recipient of the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize.
The Rohingya are a Muslim ethnic group concentrated in Rakhine state near Myanmar's border with Bangladesh. The predominantly Buddhist Myanmar does not recognize the Rohingya as a valid ethnic group and does not grant its members citizenship. The Rohingya share space with another ethnic group known as the Buddhist Rakhine, whose members reportedly have been burning Rohingya villages. In this visual anthology, we present images that offer a glimpse into Myanmar's ethnic divisions and its turbulent history with the Rohingya population.
Today in the world there are 65,3 million displaced people, fleeing wars, strife and economic hardship in their countries. It is one of the biggest challenges facing us in the 21st century. As a future social worker I feel I want to get hands-on experience of the realities that face me in my chosen profession as quickly as possible.
The refugee camp is highly overpopulated with its population exceeding its intended capacity four times over,
Volunteers provides help and support to refugees and asylum-seekers living in the camp and shelters on , by instilling a sense of normality, combating boredom, and empowering people while they wait for their asylum to be processed.

I pledge to donate any extra money raised to Volunteers which in turn helps the refugees.
Please help for ROHINGYA.
