3- Refugees Myanmar water access
Refugees Myanmar water access
More than half a million Rohingya refugees have fled violence in Myanmar and crossed the border to Bangladesh in the past months. As a stateless Muslim minority group in Myanmar, they have faced discrimination, violence and extreme poverty for decades.
Most have walked for days, bringing with them harrowing stories of violence. People are arriving in overcrowded makeshift camps. They are sick, exhausted and in desperate need of food, water and medicine. With fabricated tents and houses these refugees have no access to clean water. With a team on the ground, ESSENTIALS FOUNDATION has been working closely with the community in identifying what locations are most in need of water. Building three wells simultaneously of 100 feet each. Although this is not enough for the huge demand, it is a great start in helping these refugees in their basic needs.
