The suffering of Rohingya refugee children

After 3 & 1/2 months of genocide, our defense of Rohingya refugees has only just begun & cannot be allowed to become just another old news cycle. There are reports of severe malnutrition among children in the camps & no indications that the sanitation problems have been addressed. That’s probably because Burma, Bangladesh, the UN & many governments plan on forcibly repatriating the Rohingya so they can continue denying the genocide & wash their hands of the human rights crisis. Our mission is to demand our governments deliver massive humanitarian aid to the camps & offer asylum with safe transportation & full refugee rights.

There can be no forcible repatriation of the Rohingya refugees without their direct involvement in decisions about their fate & that of their children.
