In the last 18 months, Buddhist mobs have terrorized Muslims throughout Burma. More than 200 Muslims have been killed and mosques, homes and businesses have been burned, all while the authorities turned a blind eye. Today, almost 150,000 Rohingya are trapped in unsanitary refugee camps, living in tents, with not much food and not enough medicine.

The Burmese government says only a few hundred Rohingya have been killed due to ethnic cleansing, but other estimates from Doctors Without Borders say upwards of 6,700 have been murdered from August to September.

More than half a million people have now arrived in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, from Myanmar since August 25. Of these, more than 1,500 children are separated from their parents or arrived unaccompanied.

We are raising funds to aid BRAC.

BRAC is one of the world's largest anti-poverty NGOs — with 115,000 employees in 12 countries offering some 138 million people services including education, micro-loans, job training and health care.
BRAC has reached more than 450,000 people living in settlements in Cox's Bazar.

They are scaling up their humanitarian assistance activities every day, focusing on maternal and child health, water, sanitation and hygiene and keeping children safe.

Donations can be made directly to BRAC here: bracusa.org/southasiarecovery
