Violence in Myanmar has led to over 500,000 Rohingya people fleeing over the border to Bangladesh. Exhausted families are surviving in very basic conditions – many without shelter or clean water.
‘Three weeks ago, I had a husband and four children. Our village was attacked. My husband decapitated. While fleeing for our lives, I lost two of my children.’ – Ume, aged 27
Tearfund has launched an appeal as part of the Disasters Emergency Committee. We have partners on the ground responding right now – providing life-saving hygiene kits and safe drinking water to traumatised families like Ume’s. They are also giving medical assistance, as there is a high risk of deadly outbreaks of disease.
Desperate families urgently need your help. Please give what you can today.
