A group of young Rohingya girls collect drinking water for their families from a local pump in Balhukali settlement, Bangladesh. Nearly 480,000 people crossed into Bangladesh in the last four weeks, doubling the number of people seeking refuge in the south east of the country. The existing camps are not equipped to handle this influx of people. People need shelter, clean water, toilets and food urgently. :Aurlie Marrier d''Unienville #Rohingya #refugeecrisis #Bangladesh

Following the announcement of President Trump''s new travel #ban, which restricts visas from eight countries, we are carefully reviewing the impact it could have on Oxfam activities and staff in the affected countries. We continue to stand with #refugees and those fleeing violence and persecution. As Americans, we must continue to keep our minds, hearts, and borders open to the most vulnerable. Sign your name to tell our leaders that refugees are welcome here: oxf.am/refugees-welcome #NoBanNoWall #NoMuslimBanEver #RefugeesWelcome #RefugeeCrisis #TravelBan
