Rohingya Refugee Crisis

More than 800,000 refugees from Myanmar are now living in camps near Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.

In Brief

  • Since August 2017, an unprecedented humanitarian emergency has been building as hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees have crossed the Myanmar border into neighboring Bangladesh.
  • Direct Relief is responding with supplies and equipment needed to establish field clinics and support local hospitals.
  • This mass migration has created a refugee crisis with what is now the world’s largest refugee camp forming in southern Bangladesh, between the Myanmar border and the Bay of Bengal.
