Myanmar Appeal

A recent surge of violence in Myanmar has seen around 537,000 people cross into Bangladesh in just under two months.

Young and old are arriving exhausted, hungry and dehydrated.

They join thousands of people already in the Cox’s Bazar region of Bangladesh, living in makeshift camps and temporary shelters.

Adding to the misery, Bangladesh has faced terrible monsoon flooding.

The Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is providing food, clean water, shelter and medical care. Please help us do more.
