Over 600,000 Rohingya refugees — a minority Muslim population — have fled their homes in Burma to Bangladesh to escape a campaign of ethnic cleansing being waged by the Burmese military. The reports are horrifying: the military has burnt villages to the ground and inflicted brutal violence on the Rohingya including rape, beatings, beheadings, and mass killings.
Our parent organization, UUSC, and its allies have been working with its partners on the ground and in the U.S. to pressure the military of Burma to stop their attacks and hold them accountable. Find out the latest news, petitions you can sign, and other ways to add your voice to calls for action on behalf of refugees here.
How else can you lend support to refugees from Burma? The Good Buy’s partner Prosperity Candle has long worked with women from the region who have fled their violent conditions in their homeland. They’ve shared inspiring stories of hope from several women who have resettled in the U.S. and begun working as candle artisans.
