Over half a million Rohingya refugees have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh, running to escape what UN human rights officers are calling “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing.”
The Rohingya, an impoverished, stateless Muslim minority in Myanmar, have long faced persecution and escalating government violence. The vast majority of the refugees are women and children.
UNICEF is trucking in crucial supplies; rapid response teams are providing medical care including vaccinations and other emergency services. There are shortages of clean water and food, and many children are severely malnourished. Urgent action is needed. Donate to help UNICEF reach the children who desperately need help now.
