Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh is home to the largest refugee camp in the world, with nearly a million Rohingya refugees. One in six children under the age of five in the camp is malnourished. That's 32,000 children who are going hungry.
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.
