What you can do

 

In 2017 nearly a million Rohingya were forced to flee their homes and seek refuge in Bangladesh. Among them are 500,000 children. They now live in the biggest refugee camp in the world. We helped them send a message to you - that in a world as big as ours there must surely be a safe place that they can call home. These children urgently need your help for immediate short term needs whilst the global community works on a long term solution.
