Rohingya refugees fled violence at a staggering rate in 2017 – and the numbers keep growing.

More than 1 year of the situation, the number have steadily grown. At the peak of the crisis, thousands were crossing into Bangladesh daily. Most walked for days through jungles and mountains, or braved dangerous sea voyages across the Bay of Bengal. They arrived exhausted, hungry and sick – in need of international protection and humanitarian assistance.

More than 723,000 Rohingya children, women and men have been forced to flee to Bangladesh escaping violence since August 2017. They have arrived exhausted, hungry, and sick after walking for days from their villages through jungles, across mountains and rivers carrying what little they could bring from home.

They are in need of international protection and humanitarian assistance.
