One million people have been affected by the violence in Rakhine State, Myanmar.
Over 670,000 have fled to Bangladesh in search of safety, making this the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world.
Red Cross teams have been helping people on both sides of the border since the crisis started.
We’ve opened an emergency hospital to care for those sick or injured. We are helping people access emergency shelter, toilets, food and safe drinking water. We are also providing personal and social support, and establishing safe spaces for women and children.
As the monsoon season approaches we are doing all we can. We are helping people reinforce their shelters and learn what to do in the event of flooding, landslides or cyclones. We are also reinforcing our field hospital and stocking up on first aid items in the event of a disaster.
We continue to reconnect families who became separated as they fled, as well as help people learn the fate of their loved ones.
Our Myanmar Crisis Appeal is helping people get the essentials they need to survive and cope.
Together, we can ensure no crisis is too big to make a difference.
