More Rohingya people have fled in the last four weeks than all Mediterranean migrants in 2016.
Those fleeing have reported that they fled for safety after seeing their family members or neighbours killed or their homes and fields set on fire. The outbreaks of extreme violence have targeted Rohingya families, including young children.
Rohingya refugees have entered a very small region in Bangladesh that does not have the infrastructure or services to support them. Families are walking day after day in search of safety, but escape from terror is followed by other serious challenges. They have left their homes with nothing and have arrived to nothing, as there is limited shelter, food and medical services available. Nearly all families have lost loved ones. This crisis has developed so rapidly that the Bangladesh government and humanitarian agencies are overwhelmed.
We cannot turn our backs. A Christian response is required.
World Renew’s team in Bangladesh is working in partnership with the Christian Commission for Development in Bangladesh to provide vital food assistance to Rohingya refugees. We urgently need your support to feed those who are truly hungry.
Please pray for the Rohingya in their time of need – that hatred and violence would be miraculously overcome by love and peace. No one should experience this relentless oppression.
Please join us by donating a gift to World Renew's response to this crisis. Your gift will be matched generously by others who are willing to work with us on this urgent need.
Together we can change the story from despair to hope.
