This years Monsoon flooding has devastated the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh. Thousands have been displaced and a humanitarian response is critical. With relentless rain and services massively disrupted, water borne diseases pose a serious risk to life. Our findings thus far confirm:
- 23,000 people have been affected
- 15,000 Rohingya have been displaced
- Landslides, footpaths and canals have seen Balukhali camp severely affected
Whilst large institutional organisations try to secure funding from international partners, we have found that the Rohingya who have been affected are receiving very limited support in terms of food and shelter and that within a short time they will be sent back to camps without any means for continued living. For over a year, all sectors of humanitarian response servicing the camps have been on massively limited operations. Without question the mental well being of children without access to education and of the adult population is affected. We ask you at this time to continue supporting the Rohingya community.
As ever, we promise to act in first responder capacity and provide the most essential support needed.
