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 currently 1.2+ million Rohingya refugees living in unimaginable conditions in the world’s largest refugee camp located in Bangladesh

Humanity Rises, founded by Bostonian Kel Kelly, is a refugee humanitarian aid organization focused on the Rohingya crisis. Humanity Rises runs a medical clinic and child life center in the Balukhali Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh. Humanity Rises was founded under the fundamental belief 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 “Boston’s Evening of Light for Rohingya Refugees.”
