We urgently need your help

In 2017, after violence erupted in Myanmar, over 700,000 people were forced to flee their homes with nothing.

Families endured treacherous journeys, and many lost loved ones along the way.

Those who survived are now living in the world’s largest refugee camp in Bangladesh, which has one of the most severe cyclone and monsoon seasons in the world. 

Two years on and this is still one of the largest operations in the world for the Red Cross, as we continue to support hundreds of thousands of people with shelter, access to clean water, food, healthcare and emotional support. 

Please donate today.

In the last monsoon, the roof was thrown up and blown off in the wind. We had to repair it again. There are a lot of people who get hurt, by falling wood, trees, bamboo etc.
