Thousands of Rohingya fled western Myanmar into neighboring Bangladesh in August and early September of 2017. A military crackdown has destroyed villages and killed hundreds. According to the United Nations, the fleeing that started in July is expected to continue.
Certain regions of Myanmar are littered with landmines, and the military is reluctant to relinquish its presence. Even if these problems are solved, some young people, who grew up in refugee camps, do not want to return to homes they no longer know.
Please pray for peace and safety for the refugees. Pray God will provide for all their needs as they begin new lives.
