Update: Rohingya Refugee Crisis

In less than two months, more than 600,000 Rohingyas have fled Myanmar – bringing the total to over one million refugees.
 
The new arrivals have shared horrific stories with Médecins Sans Frontières about their villages being raided and burned and of widespread violence against civilians.
 
In the first three weeks alone, Médecins Sans Frontières treated over 250 newly arrived patients with violence-related injuries. Their injuries included bullet wounds, severe burns, blast wounds, stab wounds and sexual violence.
