Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees have taken up residence at Cox’s Bazar, a refugee camp along the southeast coast of Bangladesh.
Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees have taken up residence at Cox’s Bazar, a refugee camp along the southeast coast of Bangladesh, after fleeing the violence and discrimination they faced in Myanmar. Back in Myanmar, whole villages were burned to the ground, men were brutalised, women were attacked and raped, and a whole host of atrocities were committed against the Rohingya people.
Families fled to Bangladesh as quickly as they could, with no more than the clothes on their backs and the hope for a better future. In Cox’s Bazar living conditions are overcrowded and Rohingya refugees are completely dependent upon aid to survive.
For a small donation of just £25, you can provide a family with a nutritious food parcel that will ease their suffering.
Our team in Cox’s Bazar are working tirelessly to eliminate hunger throughout the community by delivering food parcels to vulnerable families in need. Each food parcel is made up of nutritious essentials that will keep a family of five fed for an entire month. Our parcels contain healthy foods such as rice, potatoes, onions, vermicelli, lentils, sugar, salt and oil.
20% of Rohingya children under the age of 5 are sadly malnourished, while 12% of these children are faced with serious, long-term effects to their growth because of hunger. You can help Rohingya children and their families fight the effects of malnutrition by donating a food parcel today through our Rohingya appeal.
Our SKT Welfare volunteers work tirelessly on the ground in Cox’s Bazar, delivering food parcels to vulnerable refugee families. Each parcel comprises nutritious, essential items.
