The UN has admitted that the violence against the Rohingya is a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”. In the space of three weeks, 400,000 Rohingya have been forced to flee Myanmar for Bangladesh.
Our on the ground team visited Cox's Bazar: the coastal district in Bangladesh that the Rohingya are escaping to. After assessing the situation, they found that the number one concern for the Rohingya is not shelter or clothing, but food.
In response, Charity Right has launched the Rohingya Emergency Food Appeal to combat extreme poverty and prevent loss of life. One pack costs £55 and feeds a family for a month.
We’ve already begun distributing food packs. Each one contains: 2kg flour, 3kg chira (rice flakes), 1kg gur (date molasses), 0.5kg milk powder, 10 packets of Orsaline (oral rehydration solution), 10 packets of energy biscuits, and one cooking pot.
In order to help the thousands that need food, we need your support.

1. Donate a £55 emergency food pack. It feeds one family for an entire month.
2. Provide ongoing, support.
