Help Rohingya Refugees
An estimated 480,000 Rohingya refugees have recently fled across the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh, seeking refuge from violence in Rakhine State. With camps overflowing and new arrivals every day, a humanitarian crisis is rapidly unfolding.
Partners Asia’s long-term local partner in Bangladesh has worked in the refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar for the last seven years and has the infrastructure to respond immediately and effectively, with food, shelter, water, sanitation, safe spaces for children, and basic sustenance. Starting in January, they will focus on longer-term needs, particularly for new arrival children in the areas of education and health care.
Please consider a gift to directly support the newly arrived Rohingya refugees. This crisis will not be easily or quickly resolved, and they need our help. Thank you for your kindness.
To learn more about the Rohingya crisis and its long-term implications for Myanmar, we recommend listening to this in-depth conversation filmed by the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School.
Tarek Zeidan, HKS ’18, moderated the discussion between Yee Htun, clinical instructor and former director of the Myanmar Program for Justice Trust, and Tyler Giannini, Human Rights Program’s co-director and co-founder of EarthRights International, who worked on the Thai-Burmese border for a decade.
