The Rohingya Are in Crisis
They Need Your Help!
The Rohingya people are in the grip of the worst humanitarian crisis of the time. Escalating violence has already caused the death of at least 800 Rohingya people including children and women. Thousands of houses have been burned down by the Myanmar military and more than 30,000 people have been forced out of their homes who are now living in open-field with no shelter above their head.
Rohingya people are being 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 being raped, children being abused and burned alive. The militaries are continually killing and torturing the innocent people in Burma, they are shown no mercy and those people are suffering from inhuman degrading for doing no wrong but for wanting peace, nationality and basic human rights.
There is a mass exodus from the country. This is because people are leaving the country to save their loved ones and their own life and according they are facing perilous journeys. Rohingya Muslims are forced to risk everything to escape this brutal persecution. More than 10 Rohingya refugees, including children, are dying day by day as a result of sinking boats while crossing the border.
Far from home and afraid for their lives, most are now dependent on aid for all their basic needs – food, water, shelter, clothes and medical care.
There is currently a media blackout on the situation, but according to BBC and Al Jazeera a number of Rohingya refugees have been shot while trying the flee the violence. They reported: “Aid workers, camp residents and authorities in Bangladesh estimated that at least 65,000 Rohingya had fled Myanmar since the recent attacks according to the UN-UNHCR.”
