Samira and her grandson arrived in Bangladesh from the Rakhine state in Myanmar. Her four daughters were killed by militants with machetes, leaving her to flee with the young baby to save both of their lives.
They are two of the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who have fled to Bangladesh since violence broke out against their community. More than half of these refugees are children, many of whom have faced trauma unlike any horror we can imagine.
These refugees now reside in camps, some of which were built more than 30 years ago and some of which have been brought together spontaneously in response to this crisis. There are not enough supplies in these camps to match the overwhelming need of these refugees. Samira cried when she told our team that she does not have enough food for her grandson.
ADRA is on the ground in Bangladesh, responding to the needs of these refugees and others. With your support, we have distributed shelter supplies, provided emergency food, and so much more.
