Genocide is occurring in Myanmar. Over 500,000 Rohingya have been forced from their homes and are in desperate need of food, medicine and shelter. Invest in the long-term wellbeing of these families by giving monthly and a generous friend of Partners will match your first gift!
The Rohingya need your help.
The Rohingya are a stateless Muslim minority group in Myanmar. The estimated 1 million Rohingya living in Myanmar have been subjected to systematic persecution and grave human rights abuses by authorities for decades. Escalating violence in September 2017 has now forced an additional 500,000 to flee to Bangladesh.
Despite the election of a nominally-civilian government in November 2015, the new Myanmar Government has not shifted its policies of persecution of the Rohingya. Over 100,000 live in internally displaced persons camps with no freedom of movement or access to food, water, sanitation, healthcare and education. A report released by the International State Crime Initiative at the Queen Mary University of London has concluded that the Rohingya "face the final stages of genocide".
Since 2012, Partners has been providing emergency relief to those in camps in Rakhine State as well as those fleeing violence to Bangladesh, including rice distribution, basic medical support, tarps for shelter as well as animals, seeds and fertilizer to help establish more sustainable food supply. PLEASE HELP provide life-saving relief to these vulnerable children and families and advocate for their freedom.

"We want to ask for your help. We need food to save our lives and we need somewhere to stay."
How your support is saving lives.
As well as providing critical relief items such as food and shelter, we're investing in sustainable solutions, such animal husbandry, which help empower Rohingya communities facing severe oppression.
With limited or no access to any food supplies, these regular deliveries of rice are critical to saving lives and bringing hope.
Providing goats for farming helps establish new sources of income and gives oppressed communities a sense of self-worth.
To improve child nutrition, vegetables and chili and oil for cooking are being provided to struggling families.
Fresh water for those with no access to clean water increases sanitation and reduces the risk of water-borne illnesses.
A timeline of the Rohingya in Myanmar.
Despite claims from many within the Government of Myanmar, there is significant evidence indicating that the Rohingya have inhabited the Rakhine (Arakan) State region in Myanmar for many centuries. Below is a brief timeline of their history.
