The plight of the Rohingya refugees

Over the past weeks it has been extremely sad to see and hear the regular news reports of the shocking and tragic plight of the Rohingya musilms in Myanmar and Bangladesh.  And in light of these current events I have been carefully reflecting on whether going ahead with participation in this planned research trip is the right thing to do. 

I have reached the view that, on balance, supporting such a trustworthy British-based charity as Article 25, which is committed to directly improving healthcare and living conditions for some of the poorest people in the world, is exactly the right thing to do.  

As a result I hope that I may learn something more about the current problems, and in some way help to give direct hope and support to others in need, and to those who are seeking more principled outcomes for all people in Myanmar, including those of minority groups.
