Widespread violence against Rohingya people in Myanmar has caused a refugee crisis in Bangladesh.
- More than half a million new refugees have fled into Bangladesh since August. 60% are children.
- 5,000 – 10,000 people cross the border each day needing food, shelter and medical assistance.
- Bangladesh is one of the world’s poorest nations.
Uniting Church in Australia President Stuart McMillan has urged the Australian Government to take a lead in efforts to end the brutal violence against the Rohingya people in Myanmar. Read more and please donate below.
