Burma

Burma

Religious clashes in Myanmar, a Buddhist-majority country, have driven hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims out of the country. Risking death by sea or on foot, nearly 700,000 have fled the destruction of their homes and persecution in the northern Rakhine province of Myanmar (Burma) for neighbouring Bangladesh since August 2017. The United Nations described the military offensive in Rakhine as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”. Not only are they facing violence and death from the government, but they also don’t have access to basic needs such as food and water.

Baitulmaal’s Work in Burma

Baitulmaal has been working significantly within the refugee camps of Burma, providing food and basic essentials directly to where they are needed most. We have led projects in the region, such as delivering Ramadan food baskets and Udhiyah meat. Baitulmaal has also collaborated with different organizations in the area who are aiding refugees that are fleeing the violence and migrating to Bangladesh.
