Shelters Completed for Rohingya

Al Fatiha Global with the Aid of Walsall and Black Country Rohingya Support Group raised funds to built shelters, Toilets and Hand Water Pumps for Rohingya Widows and Orphans who have fled the violence.

On this occasion, we were fortunate to be able to acquire land in an area where shelters with a tin cover are permitted to be erected.  In addition to building the shelters, Al Fatiha Global is working with local NGO's to distribute food aid to Rohingya refugees inside Bangladesh.  It is estimated there are over half a million Rohingya refugees in have fled to Bangladesh recently. They are joined by the hundred of thousands Rohingya refugees and their children that have been forced to flee since the 1970's.

There are approx 700,000 unregistered refugees in Bangladesh who do not receive any assistance.  They are the ones who struggle on a hand to mouth existence.  Malnutrition is rife in the unregistered communities and the numbers are double the emergency threshold set by the World Health Organisation.



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

The number of Rohingya refugees (and their descendants)  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.

Through your contributions, we hope to provide: 

  • Shelters to ease immediate suffering
  • Essential food products 
  • Essential medical aid to    refugee camps 
  • Water sanitation - wells, hand pumps 
  • Education Centers
  • Orphanages 
  • Basic health care
  • Emergency response unit
  • Medicines
  • Household essentials, e.g., mosquito nets, bedding, etc.
