FEBRUARY 2017 - WE ARE ON THE GROUND NOW
An Amnesty International report highlighted unlawful killings, multiple rapes and the burning down of houses and entire villages in a “campaign of violence against Rohingya people that may amount to crimes against humanity.”
Due to this, the Rohingyan people have fled for their lives, and many have arrived into Bangladesh.
Bangladeshi officials’ estimates of the Rohingya population vary, but most contend there are 350,000 to 500,000.
“It’s hard to keep up the demand”
A lack of food and support means that families are starving and finding it difficult to survive.
Human Relief Foundation’s relief team is on the ground and are distributing much-needed food aid including rice, potatoes, lentils, flour and other essentials that can sustain a family for weeks.
Tragic stories from the ground
HRF’s Waseem Iqbal, said: “There’s so many different stories and it seems each one is worse than the last. These aren’t things we can change and go back in time and make a difference to. But what we can do is give people really basic necessities like food.”
“For a lot of these people, it is the difference between whether they eat, or they don’t eat. We met one lady who told us that she hasn’t for eaten for two days and she was so happy in receiving this food pack.”
