Boston’s Evening of
Light for Rohingya Refugees
The mass exodus of the Rohingya from Rakhine State to Bangladesh began on August 25, 2017, when the Myanmar military initiated a targeted and systematic genocide campaign that included murdering, burning, torturing and raping (including children) the Rohingya. There are now 1.2 million stateless Rohingya refugees stranded in Bangladesh in the world’s largest refugee camp.
Boston-based Humanity Rises is a refugee humanitarian aid organization focused on the Rohingya crisis in Bangladesh. Humanity Rises runs a medical clinic, located in the Balukhali refugee camp in Bangladesh, that provides critical health services and medications to up to 5,700 Rohingya refugees a month, as well as a child life center that provides education-based pediatric mental health services to Rohingya children who have witnessed unimaginable horror.
Humanity Rises fundamental belief is that during the world's darkest moments, light always shines through when humanity rises to help those affected by tragedy, and in helping to lift others, we lift ourselves. Become a ray of light for the Rohingya, humanity and yourself by joining us at this event.
