Refugees International stands in solidarity with Rohingya genocide survivors and recommits to partnering with them in advocacy to rebuild the Rohingya community.
It’s been six years since the horrific acts of genocide against the Rohingya people. This year, let us not merely grieve the lives lost, but amplify the resilient voices of the Rohingya survivors.
Refugees International is extremely concerned about plans to repatriate Rohingya refugees to Myanmar.
All people who find themselves in the path of danger must be allowed to seek safety, not left trapped behind barbed wire.
The Myanmar military junta is still wreaking havoc and the Rohingya’s path out of genocide has been far from clear.
Rohingya refugees are continuing to take deadly sea journeys to seek safety. The international community must respond.
Thousands of Rohingya have embarked on dangerous journeys by sea in recent months, with at least 300 believed to have died in the past year.
An alarming number of Rohingya refugees have been marooned at sea in recent weeks. Urgent action is needed to address the drivers behind these dangerous voyages and to save those still adrift.
Solutions to the protracted crisis in the Bangladesh camps all require empowerment of the Rohingya.
The U.S. announcement of a resettlement program for Rohingya from Bangladesh is a welcome and highly significant step toward addressing the Rohingya crisis.
