Conflict in Rakhine State, Myanmar, has affected over one million people and more than 700,000 people have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh.
More than three quarters of those refugees have arrived in the last twelve months alone. Children account for more than half of the people who have fled to Bangladesh. And tragically, more than one thousand of those children have arrived alone, without either of their parents. They are exhausted, hungry, and desperate.
The monsoon season has brought torrential downpours, causing landslides and floods – damaging more than 170 shelters and forcing people to move to higher ground.
Their situation is dire and without our help, the suffering will not end.
