Since 25 August 2017 we have witnessed over 630,000 Rohingya refugees fleeing from violence in Myanmar. Sign PetitionSign Petition
Imagine having to run for your life, leaving everything behind at a moment's notice — family members, friends, your home and all of your belongings.
Many Rohingya are arriving in Bangladesh with only the clothes on their backs. They are recounting horrific experiences of running for their lives from violent clashes, sexual assaults, homes set alight and family members lost or injured during their escape.
These people did not choose to be refugees. No one does. But all refugees have the right to protection and safety.
This is the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world and UNHCR has declared it a Level 3 emergency, its highest level of alert.
Add your name to the #WithRefugees petition to stand with the Rohingya people and all those forced to flee conflict. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, will present the final petition to the United Nations General Assembly in 2018.
Help spread the word by sharing this petition with your friends and family today. The global refugee crisis has never been more urgent. There are now 65.6 million people displaced worldwide, the highest number since World War II.
Send a clear message to governments that they must act with solidarity and shared responsibility to protect the rights of people forced from their homes.
