Hundreds of thousands of people have fled their homes and crossed the border to Bangladesh, in search of safety.

Camps are overcrowded, leaving little space for basic infrastructure. As a result, more than 90% of household water sources are highly contaminated with reported cases of E.coli and diphtheria having erupted.
Islamic Relief has been working in Myanmar since 2008, delivering life-saving emergency aid, food and hygiene kits to those displaced by inter-communal violence. We’ve also rebuilt schools and provided healthcare through our innovative mobile boat clinics, which allows us to reach isolated communities.
Islamic Relief is on the ground inside Myanmar and has delivered life-saving humanitarian support to approximately 1.2 million people, but there are many more people desperately in need – please donate now and help save lives.
The current situation is amongst the worst of what we have encountered in this country. People are suffering from deaths, displacement, food shortages, and a lack of shelter and healthcare. Islamic Relief is doing all it can to help people in Myanmar.
Please donate. Your donation could save lives.
