Genocide is occurring in Myanmar. Since August 2017, over 600,000 Rohingya have been forced from their homes, before travelling to Bangladesh to escape the violence in Myanmar.  Men, women and children have been forced to flee. They have arrived exhausted, hungry and sick after walking for days from their villages through jungles across mountains and over rivers carrying  what little they could bring from home.
