Rohingya Refugee Crisis
Since August 2017, an estimated 745,000 Rohingya have fled into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
In crisis settings the unique needs of women and girls are often forgotten or ignored. The Rohingya crisis is not any different. Recognising the trauma that so many Rohingya refugee women have endured and the risk they still faced, in January 2018, UN Women and partners set up the first Women’s Centre – a safe space for women and girls in Cox’s Bazar refugee camps, providing counselling, training, support and a place to connect with other women who understand the traumas they each have faced. Today UN Women runs five Multi-Purpose Women’s Centres across Cox’s Bazar.
These Women’s Centres are a lifeline to so many women and children. You can help keep them running and supporting the needs of women and their families by giving generously today.
