Humanity at Work · Compassionate Humanists supporting charities worldwide
Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) is now collecting funds to support recovery efforts for the Rohingya refugees affected by the monsoon flooding in Bangladesh.
At least 4.8 million people are displaced and at least 666 people have died in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and the Kashmir region including in the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh where at least 23 inches of rain have fallen this month. Despite 30,000 refugees being moved away from the most landslide-prone areas last year, hundreds of landslides since April have killed at least 10 people in the camps and destroyed thousands of makeshift homes. The World Food Program reported that 11,400 people required extra food assistance in the first two weeks of July 2019 compared to 7,000 in all of July 2018. The Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh shelter over 700,000 people who fled ethnic cleansing in Myanmar in mid-2017. The camps are built on sandy ground that washes away easily in heavy rain and officials say the number of landslides is increasing because of the deforestation that took place to make space for the refugee settlements.
As this disaster continues and more information is received, FBB may choose additional avenues for supporting those affected.
The Humanist Disaster Recovery program is sustained through a partnership between Foundation Beyond Belief and the American Humanist Association (AHA). We thank AHA for their generous support of our efforts.
