Group of women and children

On August 25, 2017, attacks by armed actors in Burma and subsequent military operations in Rakhine State caused a humanitarian disaster. More than half a million Rohingya refugees flooded across the border to Bangladesh to escape violence in Burma’s Rakhine State, including the elderly, pregnant women and children. Refugees currently residing in temporary settlements near Cox’s Bazar suffer from high levels of food insecurity and malnutrition. In response, USAID’s Office of Food for Peace has contributed nearly $28 million to support food assistance and nutrition programs in Burma and Bangladesh. Photo credit: Ashique Rushdi, USAID
