2. Through UN statistics, nearly 120,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to the Myanmar-Bangladesh border for saving lives. They have no place to live because their houses and villages have been burned and their property has been seized. At the same time, a total of 400,000 refugees are expected to experience a tornado humanitarian crisis due to being trapped within the conflict zone in Northern Arakan territory due to the ongoing military operations of the Myanmar Army.

Through the UNHCR monitoring, nearly 60,000 registered Rohingya refugees are in Malaysia.

5. MRA continues to champion the fate of Rohingya in Malaysia by conducting a special school for Rohingya children named Rohingya Community School (RCS) located in Kg Cheras Baru, Cheras. Here, the Rohingyas are supplied with science and religious education so that they are formed into a knowledgeable generation, have a sense of identity and noble morals.
