Conflict in Myanmar has forced over 470,000 Rohingya people 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.
UNHCR is working tirelessly with its partners to register the new arrivals and provide them with lifesaving aid like shelter, food, water and healthcare. Our airlifts of vital aid have started as well, but as the influx is increasing daily, needs are escalating, leaving our operations in Bangladesh underfunded.
