Rohingya Emergency FundThe Rohingya people of Burma (Myanmar) are experiencing horrific violence and a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing, simply because of their ethnic origin. Since August 25, 2017, the Burmese military has burned entire Rohingya villages to the ground, indiscriminately massacred Rohingya men, women and children, and forced an estimated 687,000 people to flee on foot or by boat from their burned villages to refugee camps in Bangladesh, usually a trek of several weeks.
AJWS is standing by the Rohingya people, offering immediate and longer-term humanitarian aid—including food and water—to refugees who have fled across the border into Bangladesh. We are also supporting Rohingya human rights activists in Burma and around the world in their efforts to stop military violence against the Rohingya community.
As Jews, we understand this tragedy all too well, and we cannot remain silent while mass murder and displacement take place. Join us by starting your own fundraising campaign today to ensure the survival, safety and dignity of the Rohingya people.
