Myanmar Emergency Appeal
Violent clashes in Rakhine State since October 9th have left dozens dead and whole communities destitute without access to food or shelter.
According to the World Food Programme, 162,000 people are facing food insecurity and 78,000 people are in need of immediate food assistance.
Islamic Relief has launched an emergency appeal to help the victims of this crisis.
Although Myanmar rarely makes the headlines, the UN estimates that over 240,000 people have been displaced since 2011. In Rakhine state alone, there are a reported 140,000 internally displaced people.
Islamic Relief has been working throughout Myanmar since 2008, delivering life-saving emergency aid, food and hygiene kits to those displaced by inter-communal violence. We’ve also rebuilt schools and provided healthcare through our innovative mobile boat clinics, which allows us to reach isolated communities.
We are on the ground inside Myanmar and have delivered life-saving humanitarian support to over 852,000 people, but there are many more people desperately in need – please donate now and help save lives.
