Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh is home to the largest refugee camp in the world, with nearly a million Rohingya refugees. One in ten children under the age of five in the camp is malnourished. 

Since 2017, families have been forced to flee Myanmar to escape brutal violence, walking and swimming for days to find safety. But the nightmare is far from over. 

The nutrition situation in Cox's Bazar has been classified as a crisis and without help, it could become a catastrophe.

By donating you can save a malnourished child's life. You'll be helping to fund Concern's nutrition centres and provide life-saving therapeutic food.

Meet Tahira* and Reshma*

Tahira* was born in the refugee camp after her mum made the long and dangerous journey whilst heavily pregnant. Shortly after arriving she went into labour and tragically died due to blood loss a few days later.

Reshma*, Tahira's aunt adopted her, but she couldn't breastfeed and struggled to find or afford any formula. As a result, Tahira became severely malnourished and was at risk of dying, too weak to even make a sound.

*names changed for security reasons.

How we're responding and how you can help

Our supporters help to fund nine nutrition centres in the camp, meaning babies like Tahira have access to life-saving therapeutic food and a team of dedicated staff.

In just two months the nutrient-dense food has helped Tahira to gain weight and strength, but she still has a long way to go.

Please help us save children like Tahira by donating what you can to provide life-saving therapeutic food.
