World Vision Rohingya Refugee Response

In August 2017, more than 700,000 people fled violence, persecution and gross human rights violations in northern Rakhine State in Myanmar. The speed and the volume of the crisis created an unprecedented protection crisis. World Vision is caring for up to 265,000 Rohingya people in 23 sub-camps and in neighbouring host communities. On the ground since the beginning of the crisis, World Vision is focused on providing life-sustaining support for refugees that includes food distribution, nutrition programmes, WASH services, child protection and more. We are also advocating for the protection and rights of all refugees, including their safe, voluntary and dignified repatriation to Myanmar.
