Burma Refugee Relief: 'A Silent Genocide'

Shelter: $200 per family Your donation will provide tarpaulins and construction materials for shelter housing. Currently the Rohingya camps are poorly kept with broken tents. They don’t have any life security, food safety, or accommodation facility. In addition to common issues, they suffer from lack of nutrition. Poorer Muslim Rohingya families constantly suffering from heat and cold problems, many of whom often lose their lives in border areas due to Myanmar army and related complications.

Medical Clinics: HHRD will help provide medical relief to 3,000 families over a 6-month period. Lack of nutrition and safe drinking water has made the Rohingya families prone to illnesses and water borne diseases.

Welled Water Hand Pumps: $450 per Pump Each pump will allow the refugees to have a clean water source in Rohingya camps. The hand pumps will provide clean water for 500,000 Rohingyas.

HHRD's Emergency Response Team (ERT) of Br. Mamun and Br. Mubarak are on location in Cox Bazar Bangladesh where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Refugees have sought safety from the violence in Myanmar. Consisting mainly of women and children these makeshift camps have become a center of disease and infection due to lack of hygienic conditions. Our ERT has reported a total of 640,000 Rohingya in Bangladesh with 429,000 having arrived since the new wave of violence this past month. The government of Bangladesh has appealed for $77 million in aid and have only received 36% thus far.

It is estimated that another 100,000 Rohingya are at the border of Bangladesh waiting to be allowed in. Cox Bazar is one of most popular locations of Rohingya Refugees however, the location has proved difficult with torrential rains sweeping away makeshift tents and spreading infection. Our ERT has reported 154,000 children are facing malnourishment as 90% of Rohingya Refugees receive only one meal a day. HHRD's Burma Relief Fund allows donors to select a food package for $100 which will help feed a family of 6 for one month.

A silent genocide and where the UN calls the treatment of Rohingyas 'textbook ethnic cleansing.' The country of Myanmar (Burma) is located in Southeast Asia and has been marked by one of the longest running civil wars between ethnic groups. More importantly, 1.1 million Rohingya Muslims living in the Burmese State of Rakhine have faced apartheid like conditions since 1942.

Most Rohingya are Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and are living in make shift homes throughout Saytmaji Camp in Sittwe, Burma. HHRD has helped IDP's outside the danger zone of the Rakhine State with food distributions and other Emergency Relief items.
