Ramadan aid to the last Muslims living in Arakan
IHH is continuing to deliver aid to the Muslims who managed to remain in the region following the crisis in Arakan, and to other regions of Myanmar.
Arakan, Bangladesh, Myanmar 23.05.2018

The Rohingya people, who have been continuously victimized for more than half a century, are constantly forced to flee from Arakan. The most recent, unprecedented wave of migration that began in August 2017 reveals the extent of the persecution in Arakan. Since the latest crisis, almost 800 people were forced to flee to Bangladesh, and with the last migration the numbers of Rohingya refugees living in Bangladesh reached 1 million 300 thousand.

IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation has continued its aid operations in Myanmar since 1996. In addition to aid delivered to those who were forced to flee from the persecution in Myanmar and sought refuge in Bangladesh, IHH also delivers aid to those who survived the persecution and remained in Myanmar.
