Hi, this is Sebas, Juanita, Juan, Omar, DJ Snake, Grand JD, Jhon Rachid, Yvick, Seb & Jerome. Rohingyas are often called the most persecuted minority in the world, unable to claim citizenship in a country that refuses to recognize them. The atrocities inflicted on the Rohingyas at the hands of the Myanmar government are staggering. Over the past week, Amnesty International and the international news media have reported stories of beatings, villages set on fire, rape, and murder.
The ethnic cleansing of Myanmar’s Rohingya population over the last two months has been the most severe. Stranded, stateless, and unwanted. 600,000 people have been forced out of Rakhine state by the Myanmar army and Buddhist extremists. This means 1.3 million Rohingya exist in limbo without a place to call “my country.” Myanmar’s army makes one thing clear to every Rohingya they aren’t raping, murdering, burning, or shooting: “Get out and don’t come back.” So they flee from their villages until they reach Bangladesh.
The government of Bangladesh is overwhelmed by the refugee crisis. The refugees arrive having eaten little if anything in days, and with just the clothes on their backs. Children are especially vulnerable to human trafficking, servitude, and abuse, as many have become separated from their families. Once they arrive in the tent cities (without any sanitation), the daily struggle continues to access clean water and food.
We are on the ground in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh - working with local volunteers to deliver vital aid to these refugees.
