Rohingya Refugee Relief Fund

by GlobalGiving
Rohingya Refugee Relief Fund


Extreme violence and persecution against the Rohingya people, an ethnic and religious minority, has caused an urgent humanitarian crisis. Leaving nearly all their possessions behind, the majority of the Rohingya people fled across the Myanmar border into Bangladesh. This fund will provide emergency assistance and ongoing support to Rohingya refugees in need.

In 2017, extreme violence against the Rohingya population in Myanmar caused more than 730,000 people to flee their homes and cross borders. There have been reports of helicopters firing on civilians, executions of women and children, and the burning of entire villages. The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights called the situation a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing." The majority of Rohingya are without citizenship and long-term solutions to displacement have yet to be found.


This fund will support life-saving assistance and relief efforts for Rohingya people displaced by violence and conflict, as well as those affected by disasters such as cyclones, including in and around the refugee camps in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh and neighboring settlements. Your support will help survivors get necessary immediate relief supplies like food and hygiene kits, as well as provide longer-term support through activities including the construction of health facilities.

How Your Donation Will Be Used

When you donate to GlobalGiving's Rohingya Refugee ReliefFund, your donation will be used to:

  • Deliver food, water, and critical supplies to families in crisis-affected communities
  • Support shelter and protection including for displaced people
  • Provide medical treatment and psychosocial support
  • Meet other needs as they emerge

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
