Children fleeing the Rohingya crisis urgently need your help. Join with Save the Children to help
The Rohingya Crisis is the fastest-growing humanitarian emergency in the world today. A major escalation of violence in Rakhine State, Myanmar, has forced more than 600,000 Rohingya people to flee to Bangladesh – adding to 200,000 who had fled earlier conflict. More than half the refugees – upwards of 350,000 – are children. The United Nations calls it “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.
