Over 1,000 people estimated dead from violent clashes

Since late August, the emergency situation in Rakhine State, Myanmar, has worsened with violent clashes reportedly resulting in over 1,000 dead. The United Nations estimate that over 391,000 people have fled for refuge in Bangladesh since the 25th August, whilst UNICEF estimate that 80% of refugees are women and children.

Hundreds of thousands of displaced people have reportedly obtained passage into Bangladesh since October 2016 to seek refuge in camps and villages, with many more turned back at the border.

Islamic Relief has been working in Myanmar since 2008, delivering life-saving emergency aid, food and hygiene kits to those displaced by internal conflict and inter-communal violence.

We are continuing our on-going operations in Myanmar and closely monitoring the crisis in Rakhine State – please donate now and help save lives.
