report Concern Worldwide

Concern Worldwide has today announced that it will be stepping up its humanitarian response in Bangladesh as a result of the influx of Rohingya people crossing the border from Myanmar.

Nearly 400,000 vulnerable Rohingyas have poured into the Cox’s Bazar area of southeastern Bangladesh since violence erupted in Rakhine State, Myanmar last month.

Makeshift refugee camps are at full capacity with new arrivals, many of whom are suffering from gunshot wounds and other life-threatening injuries, urgently needing food, water, shelter, and medical assistance.
