One of the worst, on-going tragedies of our age: The genocide of the Rohingya people. We have seen their horrors – rape, multilation, and murder. Over 1,100,000 Rohingya fled from their homeland to seek refuge in Bangladesh. Now, they are stranded in the middle with almost no aid or relief.
HCI has been on the ground delivering emergency aid directly to the Rohingya refugees by providing food, shelter, winter relief, water and sanitation.
While we will continue to meet the urgency of this humanitarian crisis through emergency relief distribution, we recognize that more must be done in the long term. To address this, HCI will also focus on other basic necessities such as building tube wells and latrines in the camps. Thousands are still living under tress in the midst of the monsoon rain and floods. Last year, in 2019, we built over 300 wells and latrines.
This year, we’re focused on establishing an orphan sponsorship program, a children’s center, a mobile clinic, and health initiatives for new mothers, newborns and expectant mothers.
Help us provide a dignified life for the Rohingya people.

OUR STAFF COMMENTS
Caught between a genocide at home, and unwelcoming neighbouring countries, the Rohingya people are living in limbo in crowded camps. We’re working with our volunteers, staff, and partners to provide short-term relief and long-term solutions to the needs of their community. Hope for a better life is not lost.Mahmuda Khan
