More than 700,000 Rohingyas were forced to flee their villages in Myanmar and seek refuge in huge makeshift camps in southern Bangladesh.
Nine-year-old Anowar must survive amid indescribable chaos. But with one leg amputated, he is fragile and in need of care. For him, and for thousands of
desperate Rohingyas, we must act now ...
Pursued by soldiers in Myanmar, this little boy had to seek refuge in Bangladesh with his family. When he arrived at Kutupalong-Balukhali Camp, he should have found the solace he needed. But living conditions inside this overcrowded camp are simply inhumane: drinking water is scarce, food is unreliable,
hygiene is impossible, security is lacking, and so on.
How can you escape from this situation when, in addition, you have only one leg ?
The brutal persecutions in Myanmar gave the Rohingya no choice but to abandon everything they had and seek refuge in Bangladesh. [Forced to abandon everything to take refuge in Bangladesh since sustained persecutions of extreme brutality in Myanmar left no escape (plan) from these people.] Since that frantic escape almost a year ago, tens of thousands of Rohingyas -- each one more vulnerable than the next -- have tried to survive in overcrowded camps. They include people with injuries, elderly or disabled people, orphans and pregnant women and more.
Humanity & Inclusion has been active in Bangladesh since 1997 and has intensified its efforts since the beginning of the crisis in August 2017. Thanks to our mobile teams and the installation of "Disability and vulnerability focal points," we provide direct and practical assistance for refugees:
More than 24,000 people have already benefited from our actions. But the needs are still huge. And the recent monsoon season with its torrential rains and mud has made living conditions even worse for refugees and made our work much more complicated.
This pressing emergency threatens thousands of children, women and men who have no country and no future.
To tackle this unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe, which is exacerbated by the monsoon weather, we must essentially maintain and strengthen our actions
Faced with the horrors of sustained persecution and instability in the camps, the Rohingya refugees can no longer rely [only] on solidarity. And for the most vulnerable people, your generosity and our actions are their only hope for access to vital health care and acceptable humane living conditions.
We count on you !
