The Security Situation In Burma/Myanmar Means We Cannot Help The Rohingya Refugees Inside Myanmar.

Rohingya Update

In partnership with other UK charities, The Chair of Trustees of Al Fatiha Global will be visiting Cox Bazar in March 2018, to identify suitable local medical practitioners, who need assistance in providing desperately needed medical aid for Rohingya refugees.  Any donations received in 2018, will be piroritised towards addressing medical needs of Rohingya refugees inside Bangladesh.

The number of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh is reported to be almost 1 Million now in Bangladesh with only 10% refugees able to receive aid in the UN registered camps.Next Project in 2017.

Human rights organisations have reported horrific crimes against the Rohingya, their homes and villages have been burned down and destroyed, children were taken away and killed, women violently raped, civilians brutally beaten before being burned.(1)

These undocumented Rohingya refugees fled injured and traumatised, with whatever was at hand.  Many swam across or bribed boatmen to take them across to Bangladesh, They live in makeshift huts, without access to food, medicine or education.

Al Fatiha Global have enabled its' donors to provide aid for the Rohingya since 2015.

  • Shelters to ease immediate suffering

Support Our Work

Al Fatiha Global is providing food to Rohingya fleeing persecution, the food is made by a Rohingya Family Living in a refugee camp. A Family that fled persecution and went hungry for days, is making the food with the love and attention that few can match.

This approach gives existing refugees that we have helped, the dignity to help others, by utilising their skills to vary and cook the kind of food the Rohingya are used to eating.

£10 can provide a single adult meal, for a whole month.  That's the difference between Life and Death.
