Support the Rohingya Appeal

Please support children and families fleeing violence

Plan International has launched a humanitarian response in Bangladesh to support the Rohingya people fleeing violence in Myanmar.

Since August 2017, more than 680,000 Rohingya people, the majority of them children and women, have flooded into Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh after fleeing their homes in Rakhine State.

Protecting children is a priority

“We are particularly concerned for the safety and well-being of children, whose lives have been turned upside down by this crisis," said Orla Murphy, Plan International’s Country Director in Bangladesh.

The majority of arrivals from Myanmar to Bangladesh are women and children. Many arrivals are expectant mothers or nursing infants.

Lack of sanitation is a major concern for the displaced Rohingya people. In many places, one latrine is being used by 150 people. The situation is even more challenging for girls and women, some of whom are pregnant or nursing young children. Plan International has finalised more than 160 sites for installation of latrines based on consultations with Rohingya people, including girls and women.
