Support Rohingya fleeing Myanmar
Since August, more than 600,000 Rohingyas have crossed the Myanmar border and taken refuge in Bangladesh. They are exhausted, frightened, and in desperate need of basic aid, psychosocial support, and rehabilitation care. Handicap International has more than 200 staff on the ground, working to support the most vulnerable, including people with disabilities.
You can help ensure critical aid reaches families who have fled with nothing. Please make a life-saving gift today.
$40 can provide psychosocial support to 10 families
$100 can provide a refugee family with a kit of emergency supplies
Any funds raised beyond the needs of our emergency response in Bangladesh will be used to support other vital programs in the country and around the world.
