How we're responding to the crisis
Hundreds of Rohingya children are reported to be unaccompanied, leaving them at risk of human trafficking, sexual abuse, child labour and child marriage. Thousands are camping in exposed conditions with no access to clean water or toilets. Young children in particular are at risk from water borne and contagious diseases.
Plan International has worked in Bangladesh for 23 years. Right now, our teams are on the ground launching a full-scale humanitarian response – focusing on keeping children safe and protected, and providing access to water, sanitation and hygiene.
Help us give children and families the life-saving shelter, food and water they desperately need
In the unlikely event that we raise more money than can be reasonably and efficiently spent in the region, any additional funds will be used wherever the need is greatest.
How your donation will help
By donating to our Rohingya Crisis Appeal, you’ll help us to:
- identify and document unaccompanied, separated and orphaned children
- provide psychosocial support to girls, boys and their families through child-friendly spaces, community support groups and psychological first aid
- distribute emergency supplies including hygiene kits, jerry cans and buckets to provide safe drinking water
- provide 1,500 emergency community toilets and 350 clean bathing spaces, to reduce health risks related to poor sanitation.
A perilous journey
Our teams are hoping to reach 90,000 refugees, and are working to meet the specific needs of girls and young women like 16-year-old Asma.
Asma arrived in Balukhali camp in Bangladesh 15 days ago, after fleeing Myanmar with her family. She was exhausted by the time she reached the camp, telling us:
"There was fear, rain and constant walking. I felt like dying at times."
