A Conscience International team is working in the Kutupalong refugee camp in Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar district distributing truckloads of rice and lentils to help feed the Rohingya refugees who have fled Myanmar (Burma) due to persecution. More than 600,000 refugees exist in a cramped, hot, humid, muddy area—nearly half of the number are children who are starving. Women and children suffer the most. Lack of food isn’t the only problem, however. There is a critical lack of sanitation, creating a health crisis of enormous proportion in spite of thousands of latrines being built. Water is at a premium with wells contaminated by sewage, and proper hygiene does not exist.
Conscience International intends to continue efforts in support of these people, but we need your help. If you feel compassion for the suffering Rohingya refugees, please consider a tax-deductible donation in any amount on this secure website, or donate by mail to: Conscience International 44 Milton Ave., Suite 122 Alpharetta, GA 30009 USA
