Burma Refugee Relief: 'A Silent Genocide'

HHRD's Emergency Response Team is in Cox Bazar, Bangladesh providing food relief items to Rohingya Refugees. With 700,000 scattered throughout the area and an estimated 400,000 at the border ready to come the situation continues to grow worse. Torrential rains threaten makeshift shelters with flooding and could cause disease and infection. Every story is more devastating than the other as refugees recount their journey to escape the violence in Myanmar.

The recent surge in violence against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar has caused global concern with the rising death toll since the crisis began in 2012. Rohingya's have fled the region of Rakhine with hopes of finding safety in the neighboring areas of Myanmar, as well as the countries of Bangladesh, Thailand, and Indonesia.

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.
