Rohingya, a minority ethnic group from the Rakhine province in Myanmar is facing an enormous refugee crisis. Over 1,000,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh and live as refugees in overcrowded camps in locations prone to frequent natural disasters. Many of them are struggling to recover from traumatic experiences and to meet basic needs.
Purpose of Life decided this crisis cannot be ignored. We first travelled to Bangladesh in December 2017 and the UK Team have been several times since to help manage our dedicated team on the ground who are there permanently all year round.
