Forgotten Ones

06 September, 2017 Emergency Response
More than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh since August 25th, amidst allegations of mass killings and the systematic burning of Rohingya villages by Myanmar security forces. Approximately 400 have been killed in the clashes with Rohingya fighters and government security forces, with 80% of those affected women and children. These Rohingyas are forced to live in schools and community centres, and refugee camps in Bangladesh.


In Bangladesh, we are working to provide emergency aid to refugees that have fled Myanmar and have now found refuge in Bangladesh. Our emergency packages include 40 kg food packages of nutritious staples like rice, wheat flour, soybean oil, puffed rice, pulses, baby food (powdered milk), high energy biscuits and water purifying tablets. Each food package costs $45 and can support a family of 5 for a month. With your continued support, we can continue to provide critical emergency aid to these vulnerable people.

Note: At IDRF we are committed to managing your funds and being accountable to you as our donors with full transparency. To do this, we are committed to ensuring that the funds you have selected are designated to the appropriate country. In the event IDRF receives funds that cannot be designated to the country selected, then please know that the funds will be redirected to support other vulnerable communities that are in urgent need.
