The Rohingya are an ethnic minority group within Myanmar, making up one million of the 52 million population. The Myanmar government has refused to recognise the Rohingya as people, revoking their citizenships and essentially branding them as illegal immigrants.
They live within the region that borders Bangladesh, meaning that they’re often forced to escape the peril of their own country by entering Bangladesh. Over half of the Rohingya population have either fled their homes or find themselves trapped within areas of struggle. The Rohingya Refugee crisis is among the most severe humanitarian crises worldwide, which is why we’re doing all that we can to combat it.
The crisis has meant that an entire community has no place to call their own, resulting in non-existent protection. With your donations, we can distribute food packs, provide nutritious hot meals, install clean drinking water supplies, distribute medical supplies, provide shelter, and even build mosques and prayer spaces. Similarly, you can adopt a refugee family to ensure that they’re well looked after and shielded from potential threats.
Refugees in Yemen
Yemen is currently experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis worldwide and, as a result, upwards of four million people have been forced to flee their homes. Already, Yemen was among the poorest countries in the Middle East; however, the ongoing circumstances have only devastated the country even further. This has led to a collapse of health facilities and a widespread famine, causing millions to go without healthcare and food alike.
Displaced Yemenis are the most at risk of going hungry, with 67% being food insecure. On top of this, the cramped conditions of refugee camps result in the further spread of diseases such as dengue fever, measles, diphtheria, cholera, and COVID-19. Each of these illnesses is preventable, yet dire living conditions and substandard healthcare mean millions die as a result of them.
In order to aid the situation, we use your donations to provide nutritious cooked meals, emergency survival packs, food packs, hygiene kits, emergency medical supplies, clean drinking water, and mobile medical camps. Additionally, by sponsoring a bread factory, you can contribute to providing between 6,000 and 12,000 pieces of bread.
Refugees in India
Despite being the second-most populous country worldwide, India is still home to thousands of refugees from other countries. Since 800 million citizens of India’s 1.3 billion population aren’t able to readily access clean water, food, or adequate shelter, there are barely enough provisions in place to assist refugees. Although the situation in India is far from ideal, many refugees have no choice but to flee there due to their terrible home conditions. UKIM’s work not only assists citizens in India but also those on the hunt for security from the threat of their home country.
With the help of your donations, we’re able to distribute food packs, provide emergency survival kits, supply water pumps, set up mobile healthcare camps, and fund a well installation. As well as this, you can sponsor an orphan to ensure that a child is nourished, healthy, sheltered, clothed, and educated.
Refugees in Pakistan
Due to ongoing issues, thousands of refugees have fled both to and from Pakistan. Pakistani refugees are among the group of refugees that are greatly overlooked since they’re not involved in an official war. Poverty, natural disasters, and other threats are often not recognised as legitimate causes for creating refugees, meaning these people are forced to live in substandard shelters with limited access to clean water, food, shelter, and healthcare. Consequently, here at UKIM, we’re doing anything possible to assist refugees both in and out of Pakistan.
Your donations allow us to provide life-saving supplies, including medical care, water, food, shelter, clothing, and education. With your help, we can transform the lives of refugees in desperate situations.
